Helping People Every Day
The Kinsmen Foundation was established in 1971 and granted funds raised by local Kinsmen and Kinettes. When requests for assistance exceeded available funds, planning started in 1976 for a province-wide telethon as a major fundraiser and the first TeleMiracle was started in Saskatoon in February 1977.
Today, the Kinsmen Foundation provides Saskatchewan residents with special needs equipment, to improve quality of life and independence; as well as access to life-saving medical treatment.
Throughout the year, Saskatchewan people of all ages with mobility and/or cognitive challenges apply to the Kinsmen Foundation for financial assistance. The resulting miracles are varied, but the goal is always the same – to have a direct, positive effect on each recipient’s quality of life.
