How your gift will be used

Your support means kids will have a safe, interactive and imaginative place to play. You’ll help preserve our past, remember what came before us and build our future. Together we’ll have a place to connect as a community, to re-discover family and loved ones and to catch up with friends & neighbours. You’ll create safe spaces for people of all ages to stay active, enjoy nature and explore in the great outdoors.

You have the power to make an enormous impact in the Waskesiu community, while still supporting those you love.

Our community-wide Waskesiu Legacy planned giving program means you’re able to direct your gift to us at the Waskesiu Foundation while choosing to support:

  • where it’s needed most
  • the Endowment Fund
  • enhancements to the Waskesiu Golf Course
  • enhancements to Waskesiu Recreation Association facilities
  • enhancements to the Waskesiu Heritage Museum

We’ll work for you to support the part of the community that brings a smile to your face, evokes your favourite memory, or speaks to your heart.
