TelCare

Of all the ways that we contribute to communities, Telcare is perhaps the simplest. Our employees donate funds through payroll deduction. We then add 50 percent to that amount and distribute the total funds to Saskatchewan community groups.

 

Since TelCare began in 1950, the program has focused on supporting non-profit groups. These much-needed donations are our way of giving these organizations a heartfelt "thank you" for their selfless work.

Thanks to our employees who voluntarily contribute a small amount to the fund each month, TelCare's total gift to 69 community organizations in 2016 was $291,425.
