More information and requirements

Please note that someone in your group must have a Saskatoon Co-op membership to participate in this program, and that your group’s purpose should align with our Co-op’s values of community, integrity and excellence.

Saskatoon Co-op, like other community-minded businesses, receives numerous requests for donations and fundraising opportunities. Please allow a minimum of 2 weeks to review your requests and respond.

We work hard to assist in as many community organizations as possible, however due to the high volume of requests received, not all worthwhile proposals will be approved. Such a response does not reflect upon the value of your organization and the valuable service you provide.
