into one which will be self-reliant and effective in enhancing
Saskatchewan's North. While these years have been challenging,

with the need to remain viable as an organization is an ongoing
challenge. We take the view that this balance makes us a healthier
organization: the stronger and more self-reliant we are, the better

also gives us the flexibility to be more responsive to the needs
of our clients and potential clients and to partner more effectively.
We hope that, in this way, we can be a model for the kinds of
strong organizations we are in turn helping to build.
In recent years, our shift to self-sufficiency
without operating grants has also forced us to work cost effectively

Our utmost priority continues to be to grow
our fund sustainably, preserving it for future generations. Our
view is to the long term. We are pleased to see the accomplishments
of our fund and the impact we have been able to have. We hope
that our work continues to spread the sense of ownership and vibrancy
we share in our great home of northern Saskatchewan.
thanks go to our many partners and supporters who work with us
toward our vision; our staff who work tirelessly; and our clients,
whose dreams we have the privilege to help make a reality.
