Pay It Forward Friday: The Richarson Fund Pay’s it Forward


Since 1857, James Richardson & Sons, Limited has maintained a strong belief in giving back to the communities in which they serve, and that belief continues today. It’s a commitment borne of respect and appreciation for the places their employees call home and for the moments that make up life beyond the workplace.


In 1957, to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of James Richardson & Sons, Limited, corporate philanthropy was initiated through the Richardson Century Fund. In 2000, this entity was renamed the Richardson Foundation and a new vision and mission statement was introduced, focused on helping create sustainable futures for registered Canadian charitable organizations in the Visual and Performing Arts, Education, Youth Initiatives and Environmental Issues.


The Richardson Fund has already given so much to the community of Canora and now they have decided to also support our splash park.  We are excited to announce their very sizable donation of $25,000 toward the Chase Kraynick “Pay it Forward” Splash park.  Words cannot express our gratitude and appreciation for the commitment from The Richardson Fund to not only helping us to forever remember our Chase but to help the many generations of community families who will benefit and make memories while using this park.  This money will make an immense difference by converting our dream into a reality!!!  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Chase Made A Difference … Will You?
