Check out this great video explaining how community foundations work to better the community. There are community foundations throughout the world. The YDCF is a member of Community Foundations of Canada.
The Yorkton & District Community Foundation (YDCF) is a not-for-profit endowment fund connecting donors to organizations and causes that benefit the community. The interest generated by the endowment fund is distributed in the form of annual grants to charities in our communities. The principal amount in the fund, consisting of donations made to YDCF, remains intact to become a lasting legacy.
YDCF became a registered charitable public foundation on March 21, 2019. It is governed by the laws and regulations applied to charities in Canada, and is recognized by and accountable to the Canada Revenue Agency.
Our registered charitable number is 771575495RR0001. Charitable receipts for income tax purposes are issued for all donations of $25 or greater.
YDCF is operated by a volunteer board of directors. A membership body representing charities and organizations in the district meets annually for further guidance and to discuss community needs. A partnership agreement with the Saskatoon Community Foundation secures expertise to maximize investment returns and to administer the fund.
YDCF is not intended to replace any existing fundraising body 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.
It is part of a worldwide movement of community foundations whose objective is to help build stronger and more vibrant communities. We are a part of Community Foundations of Canada, a network of nearly 200 community foundations from coast to coast to coast.
We play three key roles:
Our vision is to grow a legacy and build the future together.
Our mission is to enrich the lives of the Yorkton and district community by providing support to charitable organizations through grants made possible by responsible stewardship of endowment funds.
