Investing in Saskatchewan communities
Envisioning a future where there is equitable access to health and wellness information for everyone, and each person in Saskatchewan understands how to navigate their healthcare effectively.
Community Investment Program
Organizations whose mandates relate to keeping Saskatchewan healthy just makes sense to us. That’s why Saskatchewan Blue Cross invests in charitable organizations that empower individuals and communities on their journey to whole health.
The Saskatchewan Blue Cross Community Investment strategy focuses on creating partnerships with organizations province-wide to encourage the health and wellbeing of Saskatchewan people, and places priority on initiatives advancing health literacy.
This program has three main areas of focus:
- Health Literacy
- Community Health and Wellbeing
- Diversity & Inclusion
Employee Giving Program
Saskatchewan Blue Cross employees are active members of the communities we serve, and their personal contributions make our communities stronger. We are proud to support their generous involvement in local charitable activities through our Employee Giving Programs.
Matching Financial Contributions | To support our employees’ passion for giving, Saskatchewan Blue Cross matches employee monetary donations dollar-for-dollar, up to $250 for employees annually.
Volunteering | Each Saskatchewan Blue Cross employee receives one paid day off to volunteer with a charitable organization of their choice. For those employees who choose to volunteer, Saskatchewan Blue Cross will provide a financial contribution to the employee’s charity of choice at a rate of $10/hour, up to $250 annually.
What our partners say
Saskatchewan Blue Cross and United Way of Saskatoon and Area have been working together to build a stronger Saskatoon for more than 30 years. Our partnership is comprised of workplace fundraising, sponsorship and volunteer support and has help impacted the lives of hundreds of children and families right here in Saskatoon.
Our amazing team of over 200 volunteers helps create a warm, comfortable, home-like environment for the families who stay with us. Since 2013, Saskatchewan Blue Cross has supported and acknowledged the value and impact our volunteers play to provide programing and support for families with sick children that positively impact the health and wellbeing of the entire family.
For the MS Society of Canada and people affected by multiple sclerosis (MS), this partnership has become a legacy of raising awareness and coming together to make a difference for people affected by MS in the province. The Saskatchewan Blue Cross team helps to raise funds to fuel life-changing MS research and lets their community know they’re committed to supporting people affected by MS.
