At SaskTel we’re committed to supporting non-profit and charitable organizations in the province who make a difference in our community.
SaskTel’s Community Investment Program supports Saskatchewan-based non-profit and charitable organizations that are involved in activities that directly benefit a Saskatchewan community or the province.
In particular, this program supports activities, programs, projects, and events with the following focuses:
- Information and communications technology
- Promoting diversity by representing groups such as women in non-traditional roles, persons with disabilities, visible minorities, and Indigenous people
- Rural communities
- Environmental sustainability
Investing in our community
In the 2022/23 fiscal year, SaskTel contributed almost $2.9 million to 850 non-profit and charitable organizations, community associations, venues, events, and partnerships in 214 communities throughout the province.
Here are just a few of the community organizations and events that this program sponsors:
Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame's Never Give Up Program
With a focus on youth, diversity and its programming offered in rural communities, the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame's Never Give Up Program was a clear choice to receive a SaskTel sponsorship in 2022. Never Give Up is a virtual program available to students in grades 4-8 across the province. The program encourages youth to explore identity and understand how sport contributes to the identity of self and others. It also strives to help students understand what a positive role model is, all the while recognizing the special contributions that presenters have made to Saskatchewan athletics and communities.
Scott Police Academy
SaskTel is proud to sponsor the Scott Police Academy (SPA) – an innovative program and the first of its kind in Canada, collaboratively created by Regina Public Schools and the Regina Police Service. The Academy gives high school students an understanding of law enforcement through expert speakers, adapted classroom material and hands-on experiences, all while learning and meeting the requirements for graduation.
Saskatchewan Association of Science Fairs
SaskTel's sponsorship of the Saskatchewan Association of Science Fairs helps support regional science fairs in 10 communities across the province. The organization is committed to promoting and encouraging Saskatchewan youth to develop scientific literacy as well as to demonstrate these ideas in the form of projects displayed at annual Regional and Canada wide Science Fairs.
Sponsored in part by SaskTel, the Notice Nature program encourages outdoor play through fun, nature-loving activities and observations while rewarding participants with prizes. While the program offers invaluable information about land and water stewardship, its shared focus is to thread connections with our natural environment to youth leadership and wellbeing.
Notice Nature is available to everyone of all ages from spring to autumn, through over 200 library locations and participating schools and community partner locations across Saskatchewan, inclusive of Lloydminster, the Battlefords, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, Kindersley, and surrounding rural and municipal communities.
