At SASCU, we value youth in our community. That’s why in 2002, the SASCU Board of Directors created the SASCU Youth Endowment Fund (the “Fund”) – a fund created for the significant role our community has in building a bright future for the generations to come.
Grants from the SASCU Youth Endowment Fund are awarded annually to non-profit charitable organizations carrying on projects that benefit children and youth (under 30) in the Shuswap, and/or projects organized by children and youth in the Shuswap that benefit the broader community. Preference is given to initiatives that align with SASCU’s community pillars of gathering, prosperity, and/or youth sports and arts. To learn more about SASCU’s community pillars see Our Impact (sascu.com).
In previous years, funds were awarded to the Shuswap Theatre Society, “Once Upon a Mattress” Summer Youth Theatre Camp and Arts Council for the South Shuswap/South Shuswap Children’s Theatre Foundation, Shuswap Lake Festival/Children’s Artist Camps.
If you’re passionate about the children and youth in our community or you are one with an important mission, apply to our SASCU Youth Endowment Fund. Also note, the Shuswap Community Foundation also accepts donations on behalf of the Fund.
