Our Foundation advances the public interest through greater legal knowledge and access to justice.
We are a law foundation that inspires and supports initiatives that advance justice through better access, increased knowledge, and innovation.
We grant funds for the purposes of legal education, legal research, legal aid, law libraries and law reform in accordance with our governing legislation.
The Law Foundation of Saskatchewan has chosen the following core values that will guide how we fulfill our legislative mandate.
We manage, invest, and distribute monies entrusted to the Law Foundation prudently and responsibly.
We seek and encourage partnerships and co-operative actions with and among grantees, stakeholders and others in achieving our mission. We encourage collaboration with and among those who work together to promote the achievement of our vision and mission. We support networks for sharing ideas to create and advance this purpose.
We are open to and seek new ways to fulfill the mission of inspiring and supporting innovative initiatives within our mandate.
We seek evidence that our investments in projects and organizations achieve our vision.
We hold ourselves and grantees accountable by regular evaluation and assessment of performance as measured against our vision, mission and values.
In a dynamic funding environment, we will increase our focus on adhering to an ethic of responsible planning and management of our resources. We will maintain and follow an appropriate investment and reserve policy. We will exercise due diligence in managing our resources and in our granting processes.
We will improve our knowledge of the grantee organizations we fund. We will work with grantees to evaluate how their work achieves our vision. We will use our evaluation processes to determine our grant allocations and to ensure we fund initiatives that are in line with our vision, mission and values.
We will increase the awareness of our Foundation and its work within the legal profession. We will seek to inspire new and innovative approaches to access to justice working with our grantee organizations and institutions that promote access to justice.
We will continue to seek improvements in governance and operations.
