The Law Foundation of Saskatchewan (LFS), established under The Legal Profession Act, 1990, inspires and supports initiatives that advance justice through better access, increased knowledge, and innovation. More background can be found here.
The Foundation is making a special call for organizations to submit one time grant proposals which meet the legislated mandate of the Foundation. The successful applicants will be funded under a Legacy Grant Program which has been allocated $5.0 million by the board of LFS. Applications will be accepted for one- time projects that require a minimum expenditure of $50,000 and with a project duration no longer than three years.

This call for grant proposals is open to existing or proposed new not for profit organizations, including charities. Individuals and commercial enterprises are not eligible. Organizations must operate in Saskatchewan and/or benefit the people of Saskatchewan. Existing grantees that receive continuing operating funding from LFS are eligible to apply, if the grant proposal is for a one-time project clearly distinct from the operations of the organization for which funding is already in place.
Projects that are clearly one-time projects and demonstrate innovation will be preferred.
Applications for this call will be accepted in a two-stage process.
At the first stage, you are required to submit your Applicant Information along with an Expression of Interest letter that describes the need for the program or project, how the program or project will address that need, and where the program or project will be delivered. The letter must outline in a clear and concise manner what you propose to do and how, the difference it will make and to whom, as well as the proposed timeline and budgeted cost.
Please email your Applicant Information and Expression of Interest letter to the Executive Director by June 30, 2023.
Potential grantees who have submitted satisfactory Expressions of Interest will be invited to complete the Application Form found below no later than October 31, 2023, to be considered for funding from the Legacy Grant Program.
Completed applications will be reviewed by the board at a regular meeting scheduled for December 2023. Successful grant recipients will be notified in early 2024. All applications must be submitted by email to the Executive Director.
