Do more for our communities
The Wiegers Financial & Benefits team has ever-growing community involvement goals. Our commitment to helping strengthen and grow our local community is steadfast.
We view our role in and responsibility to the community in two important and related ways. First, we are in the very fortunate position of being able to effectively propagate widespread awareness about important issues and causes in our community. With 35 community-minded individuals on our team and a long-term client base of thousands of people – each of whom has his or her own network of friends and family – we have the power to help ensure that more people are made aware of important issues and causes than would otherwise be the case. Second, we contribute to and help raise money for the specific causes and events we feel most passionate about. With our broad network of clients, professional associates, friends and family, we have a very wide network of people to approach for both cash and in-kind donations, as well as other forms of support. All of this ties in perfectly with our corporate vision statement. We aim not only to help our clients lead healthier and happier lives but to help the rest of our community do so too. By raising awareness and money for local charities, we believe that we are making a positive difference.
Our community involvement & support initiatives include:
Our charity arm, Care for Kids by Wiegers, organizes a bi-annual themed events and has raised more than $1.9 million for Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Financial literacy presentations throughout Saskatoon.
Sponsorship of the Grillin’ for Gratitude initiative, which provides approximately 20 local charities and non-profits with a turn-key BBQ fundraising opportunity each summer in Saskatoon.
Sponsorship of many sporting events and organizations, including Huskies Women Soccer & Skate Canada – Saskatchewan.
Office fundraisers for a variety of causes.
In 2020, we were the proud recipient of the Greater Saskatoon Chamber SABEX Community Involvement Award.
