The Trusted Saskatoon team ran a contest on the Trusted Saskatoon Facebook page at the end of 2018 to find a new category for the Trusted Saskatoon directory. We received 100's of nominations, from children's activities to fencing, however, there was a clear winner, with over 200 nominations, we are pleased to announce the new category will be Trusted Saskatoon NON-PROFITS!
Trusted Saskatoon Non-Profits.
As a small business in Saskatchewan, Trusted has prioritized community support as part of what we do from day 1. In 2017 we were recognized for our efforts as the recipient of the Saskatchewan Chamber Of Commerce ABEX Award for community support
, so we were thrilled that this was the category that people in Saskatoon most wanted to see on our directory.
There is no ME in Community…Just WE.
So What's The Plan for Trusted Saskatoon Non-Profits Category?
We are pleased to announce that we will be GIFTING listings and annual Trusted partnerships in the new category to 4 Saskatoon Non- Profits. Each Year in January we will renew the category and we will rely on the public and the existing Trusted Saskatoon partners to help us find new Saskatoon and area non-profits to promote. Over the course of the year, we will volunteer our time and resources to help spread awareness of the 4 Trusted Saskatoon Non- profits organization activities, events and goals!
This is an in-kind donation worth $4000 per non-profit, and being a Trusted Saskatoon partner means they will receive promotion in so many areas including:
1. 2 weeks of free radio ads.
2. Video interview and promotion of video.
3. Regular Trusted partner promotion on our social media channels - including our Feature Partner Of the Week posts.
4. Free Marketing Training sessions.
5. Networking Opportunities.
