Several years ago a group of caring people from the Yorkton area noted that there were many wonderful charities doing good work, but with no coordinated way to tell people of the needs in the community and how to direct donations to the charities that can address those needs.
Yorkton and area was missing a community foundation.
On March 21, 2019, Yorkton & District Community Foundation, Inc. (YDCF) became a registered charitable public foundation operating under the laws and regulations governing charities in Canada, and recognized by the Canada Revenue Agency.
YDCF is not meant to replace any existing fundraising bodies in the district, but seeks to augment the resources available to local charities and secure funds for the current and future needs of the community.
We are part of a worldwide movement of community foundations whose objective is to help build stronger and more vibrant communities. In Canada we are a part of Community Foundations of Canada, a network of almost 200 community foundations from coast to coast to coast who work with donors to identify the causes and community they wish to support.
We work with charities in our communities to identify local needs and to advocate for social change;
We work with donors who wish to make meaningful and lasting contributions to the well-being of their community;
We support charitable organizations that provide programs and services to our communities.
