Community

Supporting the financial well-being of our members and our communities is at the heart of what we do.

Being a part of the community is fundamental to who we are – it's part of our fabric and our co-operative principles. All of this guides our community investment program. Through our program, we partner with non-profit and charitable organization to enhance the quality of life for everyone in our communities and make our province a better place.   Every year, up to 5 per cent of our pre-taxed profits are invested back into communities across Saskatchewan.

  • School funding for teams, programs or fundraisers
  • Playground funding

Application Deadlines and Process

  • All funding requests must be submitted through our online application form. No email or paper submissions will be accepted.  It's easy to follow and doesn't take much time to complete.
  • Application will be accepted in two intake periods:
    • September 1 to October 15
    • October 16 to December 1
  • Applications will be decisioned at the end of each intake period. Rest assured; we will respond to all applications either way.
  • Your organization does not have to be a member to apply.   If you’re not a member organization, why not?  Last year we waived over $188,000 in business banking fees for non-profit and charitable organizations, empowering them to use that cost savings to deliver care to clients who depend on their services. We also have no fee accounts to help you too. Being a member has its perks.
