1989 Jeux Canada Games Foundation funds 28 sports groups this year
The 1989 Jeux du Canada Games left Saskatoon and Saskatchewan with legacies in facilities, community development and sport. Sport equipment from the Games was distributed to communities and organizations throughout the province for use by amateur athletes. The 1989 Jeux du Canada Games Foundation seeks to maximize another legacy of the Games - funds remaining after the completion of the event. The Foundation distributes the interest accrued on the invested money on an annual basis to assist in the development of amateur sport in Saskatchewan.

The 1989 Jeux Canada Games Foundation was founded from profits realized from the 1989 Canada Games. Since 1989 the Foundation has grown these assets to exceed $2.5 million and allocated over $2 million to various sport related initiatives in Saskatchewan. On August 13 2014 the 1989 Jeux Canada Games Foundation Inc., hosted a 25th Anniversary reception in celebration of Saskatoon hosting the 'best ever' Canada Summer Games in 1989.
As part of this celebration the Foundation released a book authored by Ned Powers entitled "The Spirit of '89"---memories from the 1989 Jeux Canada Summer games. This book is a must read from everyone involved in sport in Saskatchewan: volunteers, coaches, managers, athletes, and sponsors.
In addition to these books being sold at McNally Robinson Book Store in Saskatoon, the Foundation is offering your organization an opportunity to raise money for your sport. The retail sale price of the book is $19.89 plus tax. Our Foundation will offer your organization these books for $10.00 and suggest that you sell them for $20.00.
With the Christmas season coming, this book would make an excellent stocking stuffer.
For ease of delivery these books are packaged in boxes with 38 books to a box.
