Why Support Inclusion Saskatchewan?
Here are just three reasons.
People with intellectual disabilities can and want to work at real jobs, but only 25% can find jobs. Our Employment & Transitions team is helping to change this by supporting individuals to prepare resumes, look for jobs, and practice for interviews.
In the past, when people with a disability were on welfare, they received $850/month. Thanks to our work on the Saskatchewan Assured Income for Disability program, people with an intellectual disability are now eligible to receive up to $1300/month.
At least 25% of the people that we support struggle to find adequate living conditions, and are often faced with the choice of becoming homeless or living in a hospital-like setting. Supporting the creation of housing is key priority for Inclusion SK.

Become an Inclusion Champion
Our Inclusion Champions provide the ongoing support Inclusion Saskatchewan needs to create change. Pleases consider joining our Inclusion Champion multi-year giving society by making a recurring annual or monthly gift – just use the drop-down menu in the donation form under “Donation Frequency” to select your preferred option. Our Inclusion Champions are recognized in our Annual Report, at our Inclusion Events, and on our Donor Wall at our Saskatoon office. For more information, contact us at 306-955-3344.
Donating Stocks & Securities
Funding a charitable gift with appreciated securities (publicly listed stocks, mutual fund units, segregated funds) is often a better option for making a gift than writing a cheque, because the capital gain in a gift of qualifying securities is now completely exempt from taxation. If you make an in-kind donation of securities to Inclusion Saskatchewan, your taxable gains will be 100% eliminated and you will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full value of the gift. Please contact your broker to initiate a transfer of securities. In order for us to send you a tax receipt, please let us know of your intentions, by filling out this Gift of Securities fillable PDF form.
