The Access Communications Children’s Fund crossed a major fundraising threshold in February: over $1,000,000 in lifetime donations made to Saskatchewan-based organizations that help at-risk and in-need children.
“A million dollars can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people,” said Jim Deane, CEO of Access Communications. “As a co-operative, it only makes sense to find ways to use that kind of money to make a difference in our member communities. And what better way to do that than by contributing to the growth and happiness of our province’s youth?”
Founded in 1996 by Access Communications employees, the Children’s Fund was mandated to provide financial assistance to kids and teens around Saskatchewan. By focusing on literacy, crime prevention, poverty, and health and well-being, the goal was to empower organizations that uplift the most vulnerable of Saskatchewan’s children.
Access Communications is a 100% Saskatchewan-owned non-profit co-operative that is committed to providing exceptional communications and entertainment services.
Access is dedicated to being a part of the communities it lives in, reinvesting 100% of its earnings into the 220 communities it serves.
