When you bank with Conexus, you’re not just putting your own financial well-being first, you’re helping us support non-profit and charitable organizations around Saskatchewan.

United Way Regina - Attendance Matters Initiative

Chronic absenteeism is defined as missing just two days of school a month. When these habits are developed early, this can have a significant effect on a child's ability to learn and master reading. By grade 9 this is a better predictor of dropping out than grades. This initiative focuses on improving education by keeping kids engaged in school through tactics such as:

-   Incentive programs to encourage attendance among students, but also parents
-   Having community coordinators in schools to help build connections with students who are struggling and better understand how they can help them be at school
-   Advertising in school - spreading the message of Attendance Matters, but also creating fun competitions among classrooms around attendance. The Regina Catholic and Regina Public School Divisions have taken steps to improve attendance, but they can't do it alone. Watch to see how you can help!

Saskatchewan Roughriders Financial Literacy Course

Conexus had the opportunity through our partnership with the Saskatchewan Roughriders to deliver a Financial Literacy course with some of the players. We tackled topics like budgeting and gave them some hard hitting tips to teach them how to save for offseason. Watch to see how well it was received.
