SaskLotteries Community Grant Program
The RM does not provide grants through the SaskLotteries Community Grant program and instead allocates its funding to communities in the area, including Balgonie, Pilot Butte, White City, the Hamlet of Crawford Estates, and the Village of Edenwold. If you are interested in applying for SaskLotteries funding, please contact the community closest to you.
Municipal Grant Program
The RM of Edenwold No. 158 values community groups that enhance quality-of-life for residents and visitors in the municipality and the region. Whether through regional and first nation initiatives, health & safety programing, environmental preservation programs, or education & skill development training, the RM would like to support community groups as they work to improve the region as a whole.
The RM has chosen to support these organizations through financial grants and in-kind donations. By providing funding, community groups can invest in programming and have a more significant impact in the area. Similarly, by providing labour, equipment, or professional expertise, organizations can benefit from the RM’s trained staff and assets to accomplish goals otherwise unavailable.
Municipal Grants: grants given to organizations who apply for and receive funding from the RM.
In-Kind Donations: donations given to organizations in the form of staff hours, municipal equipment, or other non-financial means. Examples of in-kind donations include RM staff planting trees, the RM donating gravel or other materials, or RM staff conducting research or applying for other grants on behalf of an organization.
The RM accepts applications for municipal grants and in-kind donations two times a year:
- January 1st to February 29th (for projects taking place during spring or summer); and
- from July 1st to August 31st (for projects taking place during fall or winter).
