The Insurance Brokers Association of Saskatchewan (IBAS) is proud to announce the first three funding recipients as part of the 2022 #BrokersCare Campaign for Kids:
SCEP Centre: For the past 53 years, the SCEP Centre has provided early intervention support services for children aged 2 – 5 who are faced with severe communication and behavioural challenges, including many who have been diagnosed with fetal alcohol syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and autism spectrum disorder, as well as those dealing with poverty, intergenerational trauma, and other types of family stress. The #BrokersCare contribution will support the delivery of a 38-week music therapy program for approximately 25 children and their families.
Sask Girls United: Sask Girls United (SGU) is a grassroots, volunteer-led not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing mental wellness and female leadership programming to youth aged 8 – 14. SGU was founded during the COVID-19 pandemic but has already reached 60-plus Saskatchewan communities through comprehensive in-person and digital engagement efforts. This year’s #BrokersCare contribution, which was generously matched by Saskatoon Disaster Services DKI, will go towards a joint SGU project with the University of Regina aimed at understanding and overcoming barriers to accessing community supports by rural and remote girls — and, specifically, SGU’s work alongside partners such as EGADZ to deliver direct, on-the-ground services.
Saskatchewan Roughrider Foundation: In celebration of IBAS’s seven decades in operation, the #BrokersCare Campaign has contributed funds to send two underprivileged youth to seven Rider home games this season. Youth involved in KidSport, Big Brothers – Big Sisters, and Inner City Youth will benefit from this donation.
A total of $8,140 will go towards these three initiatives.
“Brokers are pillars of Saskatchewan communities, and we are thrilled to be able to join them in kicking off this campaign by funding three very worthwhile causes,” says Randy Dhillon, vice president, central region, with Wawanesa Insurance — the title sponsor of the 2022 #BrokersCare Campaign. “With the generosity of our broker partners, we look forward to elevating and empowering many other inspiring initiatives and organizations throughout the year!”
