Giving

Businesses, foundations and individuals (including Saskatchewan Polytechnic students, alumni, staff and friends) give to Saskatchewan Polytechnic every day.

A gift to Saskatchewan Polytechnic will make a difference to Sask Polytech students and to Sask Polytech. Your gift will contribute to the success of students, the enhancement of our programs and facilities and to the social and economic prosperity of Saskatchewan. And, because Sask Polytech is a registered charitable organization, you can realize your philanthropic goals as well as your business goals when you choose one of several ways to give.

Gifts may be a one-time contribution or spread over months or even years. Gifts may be directed to student awards, priority equipment or other needs.

GrowingTomorrow

Take the Growing Tomorrow Faculty & Staff Challenge! 

Saskatchewan Polytechnic is so much more than buildings, books and equipment. Every day, our dedicated faculty and staff in Regina, Saskatoon, Prince Albert and Moose Jaw bring learning to life! If you’re one of them, we’d like to extend our thanks — and a challenge.

Will you join with your colleagues who are helping students keep their dreams alive and equipping Sask Polytech for the needs of tomorrow by making a modest donation?

The Growing Tomorrow Faculty and Staff Challenge runs from March 5 to March 31. Our goal is to reach a 14% participation rate. The amount of your gift isn't important. It’s the giving that counts.

Direct your gift to scholarships and bursaries or support projects that will help Sask Polytech enhance education and student life now and into the future. It’s up to you!

You can make your gift by credit card, cheque, cash, or through the convenient Payroll Deduction option (It’s an easy way to make a big impact on a student, without making a big impact on your wallet!)

Please complete and return the Growing Tomorrow pledge form (pdf).

Thank you for being the face and HEART of Sask Polytech!

Business and Industry Dinner

Each year, Saskatchewan Polytechnic hosts Business and Industry Dinners at each of Saskatchewan Polytechnic's four campus locations (Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Regina and Saskatoon).

Corporations purchase sponsorships or tickets for the event, and designate the number of tickets to be provided to students. The corporation also specifies the programs from which students are to be recruited.

The evening is comprised of a reception followed by dinner and a speaker. Corporate representatives are seated at tables with the students they have sponsored. The opportunity to identify and begin developing relationships with prospective employees is an opportunity to begin the increasingly important recruitment process.

In addition to their value as an employee recruitment tool, the Business and Industry Dinners offer the opportunity to meet and support Saskatchewan Polytechnic students, and find out first hand why Saskatchewan Polytechnic is the first-choice post-secondary institution for tens of thousands of individuals each year.

Proceeds from the events support scholarships for Saskatchewan Polytechnic students.

Gifts-in-Kind

President's Gala

Proceeds from the President’s Gala will benefit Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s Aboriginal Student Achievement Plan (ASAP), an initiative that provides Aboriginal students with the supports they need to succeed in their programs. Saskatchewan Polytechnic is Saskatchewan’s leading educator of adult Aboriginal students, with 18 per cent of our student population (3,000 students) being of Aboriginal ancestry.

At the gala, a black-tie atmosphere will be created within a novel setting: Red carpet, immaculate linen, beautiful table settings, ambient lighting, fine dining, and entertainment … in a scrubbed-down automotive services shop. The evening will begin with a champagne reception.

Planned Gifts

Choosing to leave a gift from the heart brings meaning, dignity and purpose to a life well lived. Your gift is your opportunity to participate in the charitable and community work most meaningful to you, in a way that allows these important causes to be well supported now and long after you have gone. Personal philanthropy through a will can be an additional way to ensure that your memory lives on.

Surprisingly, a gift can also be a very practical addition to a financial or estate plan when tax issues are taken into consideration – even for those who think they may not have tax issues. In most cases, the tax burden left to relatives is lifted significantly. Your professional advisor can teach you how giving may actually benefit your family after you're gone. Together we can make a difference – the difference these days, is that you can impact the causes you care about by including them in your will or estate plan.

Program, Equipment and Facilities Support

While the demands of our increasingly dynamic economy have accelerated, Saskatchewan Polytechnic has expanded capacity, developed new programs and realigned its program mix to equip both students and employers with the ability to capture new opportunities. Already one of Saskatchewan's largest post-secondary institutions - and one of the largest college-sector institutions in the country - Saskatchewan Polytechnic has increased enrolment by 30 per cent over the past four years.

The most critical fact that Saskatchewan Polytechnic must confront is its inability to sustain the student enrolment growth experienced during the past few years without radical investment in facilities at all four of its urban campuses.

If Saskatchewan Polytechnic is to be positioned for further enrolment growth in program areas that will be needed to build the future Saskatchewan labour force, and accelerate our response to employer and labour market demands, investment dollars must be secured from both the provincial government and the private sector to facilitate capacity and program expansion.
