Grant Programs

At Macro Properties, we believe that our future business depends on the success and vibrancy of the communities in which we do business. In the interest of growing and supporting these communities, Macro Properties has partnered with the Saskatoon Community Foundation for the Prairie Partnership Grant Program and the Prince Rupert Regional Community Foundation for the Coastal Partnership Grant ProgramThese programs support initiatives focused on the following areas:

  • First Nations Educational Outcomes
  • Early Childhood Education 
  • Self-Reliance Initiatives
  • Parks and Wilderness

The projects funded serve communities in Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia where we own and manage apartments, townhouses, office space, retail space, and short-term stay properties (motels and fully furnished accommodation). Our most recent round of grants were made to organizations serving Esterhazy, Kerrobert, Saskatoon, Prince Albert, North Battleford, Grande Cache, and Prince Rupert. We are proud to have consistently made over $50,000 in grants to these communities each year for the last 5 years. The grant applications are released every October with a submission date the following December or January.
