The Law Foundation of Saskatchewan (LFS) has issued a special call for organizations to submit one-time grant proposals which meet the legislated mandate of the Foundation. This means the proposals must be for the purposes of legal education, legal research, legal aid, law libraries and law reform.
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 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 is clearly distinct from the operations of the organization for which funding is already in place.
But time is of the essence, the first stage of the selection process requires an Applicant Information and Expression of Interest letter emailed to the LFS Executive Director by JUNE 30, 2023.
