How We're Funded
Our heartfelt thanks to the folks all over Saskatchewan who support us and fundraise on our behalf!
More than half of our funds come from corporate sponsorships. Some really successful events really boosted our reach in 2014 and early 2015 and we are continually grateful for Individual donors and third-party fundraisers. We feel the love Saskatchewan!
Creative Kids is a program of SaskCulture Inc., a community-based, non-profit cultural organization. SaskCulture provides all administrative funding to Creative Kids, so 100% of all donations and sponsorships go directly to our kids.
How We Started
Creative Kids is the first program of its kind in Canada. We are the brainchild of a group of long-time community volunteers who became our Provincial Advisory Committee. When funds remained from the 2007 Regina Mayor’s Arts and Business Awards, these volunteers suggested it become ‘seed money’ for a new program that would help kids experience arts and culture.
In 2010, Creative Kids received $230,000 from the 2010 Saskatchewan Legacy Fund, created when corporate and city partners joined the province to invest in the Saskatchewan pavilion at the 2010 Winter Olympics. With this one-time disbursement, Creative Kids began granting in its first year of operations.
