Even in times of peace, families are profoundly affected by the irregularities of regular military life. True Patriot Love receives funding requests upwards of hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for a variety of needs: therapy and respite care for children with special needs, mental health treatments for injured soldiers, peer-to-peer support programs for veterans; the list goes on. As Canadians, we are known for our generosity and strong social programs, and it should be no different when it comes to supporting our military families.
True Patriot Love is a national fundraising organization and Canada’s largest charity supporting military families. Part of this effort entails working with the constellation of other charitable organizations that provide philanthropic services to our military men and women. While many of these charities excel at program delivery; we, in turn, excel at fundraising. Rather than granting funds to individuals or families, we are an umbrella organization that directs funds to the military charities that have the infrastructure and expertise to deliver focused programming.
True Patriot Love honours the sacrifices of members of the Canadian Armed Forces, veterans and their families both in times of peace and conflict by providing funding in 4 main areas: 1) Family Health & Support, 2) Mental Health & Well-being, 3) Physical Health & Rehabilitation and 4) Research and Innovation.
To date, True Patriot Love has committed over $14.9 million to charities across Canada, and has disbursed essential funding to more than 67 programs and organizations nationwide that support our service men, women, veterans and their families.
