Marr Update

In April of 2021 the citizens of Saskatoon were made aware of the need for major repairs to the roof of the historic Marr Residence. The Marr Residence is grateful to all those who reached out to voice support for the project and with offers of financial support.

Working with the City of Saskatoon funds have been designated towards this project. The Marr is also extremely grateful to the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation, who have chosen the Marr Residence to receive a grant.

The Marr Residence and the City of Saskatoon have worked together to create a way for you to be able to make a donation to the Marr Residence and receive a charitable donation receipt. Donations will be accepted through the Marr Residence and a charitable receipt will be issued to you by the City of Saskatoon. Your donation will ensure reserve funds for future maintenance work on the Marr Residence.
