Launched in 2021, #BrokersCare is the philanthropic brand of the Insurance Brokers Association of Saskatchewan (IBAS), administered with the sole purpose of empowering the roughly 250 communities across the province in which our members live and work.
What We Support
IBAS directs 100% of its purposed-raised funds to support charities and grassroots community projects throughout the province that align with at least one of four priority areas:
- Responding to the youth mental health crisis;
- Enhancing equitable access to children’s learning and development opportunities;
- Providing comfort, care, and hope to sick kids; and
- Eliminating food insecurity for at-risk youth.
Through the generosity of our members and partners, including our Annual Campaign Partner, Wawanesa Insurance, IBAS has donated $152,850 in #BrokersCare funding as of December 2022. Some of our recipients include: Jim Pattison Children's Hospital Foundation, Sask Girls United, KidSport, Ronald McDonald House Saskatchewan, SCEP Centre, Heart Linked Community Services Co-operative, Regina Food Bank, and the Saskatoon Industry Education Council.
How We Raise Money
100% of #BrokersCare funding is raised through voluntary contributions from Saskatchewan brokers, brokerage businesses, and insurance industry partners, including via direct donations, designated activations at IBAS events, sponsorships, and through other special initiatives, such as the annual #BrokersCare t-shirt campaign. Through that campaign, roughly 1,400 t-shirts have been sold through 2021 and 2022 (selling out each year), generating close to $50,000 alone.
