The Mosaic Company continues to demonstrate its commitment to Saskatchewan with a $4 million donation to the Children's Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan. The announcement was made April 29 as the Foundation's "Be a Part of It" Capital Campaign was unveiled.

“On behalf of all of Mosaic’s 1,700-plus employees in Saskatchewan, I’m pleased to continue our history of supporting important community causes,” said Norm Beug, senior vice president of potash operations for Mosaic. “Today’s announcement is an investment in Saskatchewan’s future generations—our children—and that’s an investment that strengthens our communities, our company and our province.”

Mosaic’s donation has been designated as a gift to enhance maternal equipment, research and patient care services at the new Children's Hospital of Saskatchewan. In recognition of this gift, the hospital’s postpartum unit will carry the Mosaic name.

Mosaic also will fully underwrite the advertising and promotion of the “Be a Part of It” Capital Campaign, ensuring all money raised through the campaign goes directly to the needs of Saskatchewan’s children and their families. Money raised during the campaign will fund investments in new pediatric and maternal equipment, research and education, and patient care service enhancements.

"The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan is grateful for Mosaic’s belief and support in the health and well-being of Saskatchewan’s children, mothers and families,” said Brynn Boback-Lane, president and CEO of the Children’s Hospital Foundation. “This act of generosity will touch countless families in Saskatchewan for decades to come."

The Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan is the sole foundation responsible for fundraising for the Children’s Hospital of Saskatchewan. This new provincial hospital will serve children from across Saskatchewan, offering leading-edge health care equipment and technology, research programs and innovation.
