Access Communications Children's Fund

Another Way to Show We Care

The Access Communications Children's Fund contributes funds and support to youth-based not-for-profit organizations and charities. The Children's Fund assists children and their families in need in the many communities we serve. Revenues from TV Bingo and donations from the public, and other fundraising by Access staff members enable local charities and non-profit organizations to enhance the quality of life for those who may need a helping hand. It's just another way that Access shows we care.

    Access Communications believes that it's not enough to be in a community. We also want to be part of it. That's why our registered charity, the Access Communications Children’s Fund is happy to support organizations that contribute to a better quality of life for young people in the communities we serve.

    In 2016, the Access Communications Children’s Fund donated over $131,000 was awarded to 33 non-profit community organizations – a number we are proud of.

    Bright Smiles, Bright Futures

    Over the last ten years, our registered charity - the Access Communications Children’s Fund, has donated $1.5 million to various local children’s charities and non-profit organizations around Saskatchewan to enhance the quality of life for those who may need a helping hand. Donations are granted to support education & literacy, health & wellness, pathways out of poverty, and crime prevention for children at risk and in need. Contributions are raised by support of public donations, Access staff fundraising initiatives and funds from the weekly TV Bingo programming on Access7.

    There are children in our communities who go to bed hungry. There are also many who cannot read, and even more whose health, security and well-being are below any reasonable standard of living. The phrase ‘We can and must do more’ has never seemed more appropriate, which is why the Children’s Fund needs your help.

    By donating to our registered charity, you are doing more than just combating the shameful conditions many of our province’s children find themselves in – you are giving them a reason to smile.

    Please, donate today.
