Creative Kids is a charitable program that funds Saskatchewan children who want to take music and dance lessons, learn to paint or act, speak a family language, explore different cultures, find out about their heritage, study dinosaur bones or join a number of other creative pursuits in their community. We fund arts, heritage, multicultural and Aboriginal activities for families facing financial barriers. Up to $750 per child, per year is available for children aged 4 - 19.
Most families approved for funding have gross annual incomes of less than $40,000, although families with higher incomes have been supported depending on individual circumstances. Applications are assessed individually primarily on a family's financial need. Youth living independently may also apply.
