Saskatchewan Cultural Organization Highlight 

Parkland Valley Sport, Culture & Recreation District would like to take this opportunity to highlight one non-profit organization per month in our Read All About It! To create additional awareness of non-profit organizations in Saskatchewan that are here to help the communities in the Parkland Valley District!

Museums Association of Saskatchewan (MAS) is a non-profit, collective organization of over 250 member museums and a total membership of over 400, including individuals and associates. MAS is governed by a member-elected Board of Directors representative of the museum community. MAS staff oversee the organization's budget, membership, programming and communications. MAS strengthens Saskatchewan museums through a variety of education, advisory, resource and networking programs. MAS is funded by Sask Culture, Saskatchewan Lotteries and Canadian Heritage. 

MAS Vision & Values: Saskatchewan's cultural and natural heritage will be preserved, understood and celebrated through a strong, vibrant museum community, valued and supported by society. 

MAS Statement of Philosophy: Heritage is our social and natural inheritance: the objects, ideas, places, and traditions of intrinsic value which have shaped our present and will guide our future.

MAS believes collective inheritance is an asset that must be preserved, understood, and built upon by each generation.

MAS believes that museums, in service to society, provide stewardship for the material evidence of our human and natural inheritance and contribute to the understanding of the world and our place in it - our past, our present, and our future.
