SIGA PROUD TO BE BUILDING BACK

One of the most important measures of a healthy community is how well its residents treat the community around them. Our proud tradition of Sharing Success guides our support of those in need. Our sponsorship program provides $1.3 million annually to charitable and non-profit organizations based in Saskatchewan. Our focus is on supporting initiatives that benefit children and youth, Elders, people who require social, physical or economic help, and those with disabilities.

Our vision of Sharing Success grows out of the teachings of our Elders and their belief in sharing our land, one of our guiding principles Wîtaskêwin. Today, Wîtaskêwin refers to sharing our resources. Each year, we support hundreds of organizations and events that are making a difference in our communities.

HOW TO REQUEST SPONSORSHIP

  • Step 1: Review the eligibility criteria
  • Step 2: Review the exclusions of the program
  • Step 3: Submit your application

You must apply online. This will help ensure your application contains all relevant information necessary for a thorough review and prompt consideration of your request.

We review all sponsorship requests as early as possible to ensure each gets a fair and consistent assessment through our transparent review process. You must apply a minimum of 30 days prior to the event to be considered for a cash or merchandise sponsorship (a minimum of 120 days for requests of more than $10,000). We’ll notify you by email once we’ve made our decision. You must apply online for all requests for merchandise, in-kind, and funding.

If you’re a successful applicant, we may email you a questionnaire any time up to three months following your event. We ask that you please complete the questionnaire to ensure you remain eligible for future sponsorships.
