+ What kind of work does SSCF do?
We build legacies right here in our community by pooling investments from donors and
working with hundreds of charities and non profits right across Saskatchewan and
Canada. We are here for the long-game and want to ensure we can build a strong and
vital community today, but also for generations to come. We not only accept cash but
also unique donations such as: stocks, mutual funds or RRSPs, land or mineral rights,
real estate, life insurance policies, private company shares, works of art, and charitable
We have over 140 Funds and $100 million in assets, which have allowed us to give
back to the community over $60 million over 54 years. We protect and honour legacy
+ What motivated your company to choose Path as your base of
Path gives us a sense of community, it aligns with our vision and provides a unique
space for us to focus on our main business which is legacy giving. Being able to book
boardrooms when you need them, have confidential conversations in the private
spaces, and meet other businesses in the commons area has proven to be the right
setting for us.
+ Can you share a memorable moment or achievement that your team
has experienced during your time in our workspace?
We have convened over 10 donor events at Path that have brought in over 100 people
to see and experience the workspace. Our most recent personal business achievement
has been that we reached over $100 million in assets, and grew our investments into a
full community with over 20 new Funds.
+ What has been your team’s favourite aspect of working from Path,
and how has it positively influenced your company's daily operations / culture?
We love the flexibility of the space. It’s such a comfortable, welcoming, and relaxing
atmosphere. It’s been great hosting events in the common space. Our guests always
comment on how much it feels like they’re in someone’s home. We love the variety of
boardrooms to book for meetings.
Our team recently got a custom space built within Basecamp. While it’s amazing having
our own space within Path, it’s great to be able to go for a walk and visit with people
from other organizations as well. Our company has a remote/hybrid work model. The
inviting atmosphere of Path makes our in-office days exciting.
+ What advice would you give to other companies considering
headquartering at Path as a part of their business strategy?
We would highly recommend joining Path! There are so many different companies here
to network, collaborate, and build relationships with. It’s a great fit for anyone looking to
join a sense of community. It’s definitely enhanced our company culture.
+ Are there any upcoming projects, expansions, or initiatives that our
readers/members should look forward to from your company?
