Underwriting new futures.
This is where we roll up our sleeves and sign cheques.
Our community pillars were forged from the principles and values that founded the company decades ago. Today they chart our community engagement. Our team’s sincere passion for giving back to very specific causes is strengthened by our financial commitment to donate a percentage of revenue, not conditional profit. MAKE has and continues to have an impact on more than a few lives and we aim to do much more. Sagium generously supports the community through sponsorships, donations and volunteer work.
We donate every year, regardless of profit. It is a top line, company wide commitment.
“The really important kind of freedom involves attention and awareness and discipline, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them over and over in myriad petty, unsexy ways every day.”
David Foster Wallace
According to the Canadian Mental Health Association 1 in 5 Canadians, and 1 in 2 adults over the age of 40 will deal with a mental health illness. These stats are likely under-reported and we are committed to talk openly to bring discussion to the forefront of households, businesses and communities.
Sports can reduce the risk of depression by 30%. More specifically, athletic activity releases Dopamine and Serotonin that reduces anxiety, helps manage ADHD and can enhance self-worth. In a world of reduced social interaction, it can also help build social prowess, communication, and teamwork. These skills last far beyond summer vacation.
We believe every child deserves to reach their potential through a better future. We invest in that next generation, in many ways. Our story goes back decades, but a focus on improving the lives of children and youth has been a constant.
Education is about gaining the knowledge and skills to better ourselves and the world we live in. As Ben Franklin said, “an investment in knowledge pays the best interest”.
“When people are at their best—physically, mentally, and emotionally—something powerful happens.”
What matters to us
“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.”
