2007 Endowment Awards Recipients

Awards from the Foundation were first made in 2007. Awards have been made in years when funds have been available from the growing endowments, or when funds have been donated for specific annual awards.

These awards are made possible because of the generosity of our endowment donors. Thank you for your vision, commitment and support of Saskatchewan Artists.

We acknowledge the current and past volunteer Board of Trustees for their efforts in supporting the work of the Foundation.

In 2007, the designated endowment funds provided 5 awards of $2500 each.

The Foundation gratefully acknowledges the expertise of the Saskatchewan Arts Board for the facilitation of the adjudication process.
