Testimonials for funding in 2018 – 2019

“This project would have been delayed for an un-determined amount of years if we had not received the funds from Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation as budgeting funds for these projects don’t make the priority list as water/sewer/road projects receive money first.  That would also have resulted in the project becoming more expensive as each year that a structure goes without maintenance such as paint or windows causes more problems. We feel very fortunate to have received these much needed funds.”  Town of Hague

 

“Please accept Tourism Radville’s appreciation and thanks for the grant funding support from Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation.  The project could not have been completed in full without your support”. Shauna Bourassa, Town of Radville

 

“Thank you very much for accepting our application for the Built Heritage Grant in the amount of $4,200.  The restoration of St. Antony’s Church would not of been feasible without your aid.”  St. Antony’s Historical Society, Macklin

“On behalf of the Vestry of St. Matthew Anglican Church, we want to express how much your support and advice on behalf of the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation (SHF) has contributed to our program and financial team, as we move forward on our Building Restoration Program.  The support of the SHF has enabled us to continue to advance our critical heritage restoration.”  Mae Boa, Lay Incumbent & Lay Administrator

 

“If it hadn’t been for the help of four SHF grants totalling $20,000 over six years this project probably never would have been completed.  Although this project was far more massive than I ever would have thought, its completion has been very rewarding and the end result has been very satisfying.  Seeing this old barn restored with original type material and once again standing straight and proud is very important so that many future generations can enjoy the historical importance of it for many more years to come into the future”.  Daryl Collin, RM of Bayne #371

“I would like to once again express my gratitude to the Board for approving this exceptional grant request for an archaeological study of burned native prairie in the archaeologically-rich are of Cabri Lake and the 96 Ranch.  The money allowed for two different photogrammetric studies, and has really enriched our understanding of not only the sites that are present in the area but also in the best applications of this recent technology.  Much appreciation for this grant.   Dr. Margaret Kenney
