Thank you for your understanding!

The Kinsmen Foundation is a funder of last resort. Which means, if you are able to self-fund, crowd-fund, or have other avenues of resources, please utilize those first, before applying to us. Otherwise, all individuals with a valid Saskatchewan Healthcard are eligible to apply.

Regardless of age, anyone that holds a valid Saskatchewan Healthcard is eligible to apply.

To our knowledge, Saskatchewan is unique in that we are the only province in Canada that holds such a telethon. All monies raised at TeleMiracle are used to help Saskatchewan residents only. With one exception, the city of Lloydminster, all residents of Lloydminster are welcome to apply.

The Kinsmen Foundation considers applications for individuals to access medical treatment, be it out of province or out of country, providing all treatment is covered by Saskatchewan Health.

The Kinsmen Foundation considers application for individuals to access medical treatment outside of their home community, and/or special needs, mobility or communication equipment.

The Kinsmen Foundation holds nine meetings per year. All decisions are made during the meetings and individuals are notified immediately after by a phone call and a letter.

The Kinsmen Foundation does have an emergency process for medical travel funding only. In the event the medical appointment is prior to our next Board meeting, we can process the application as an emergency. The typical response time, upon receipt or all the information, is within two business days.
