Our Beginnings

In 2008, when our soldiers were returning home from Afghanistan, and the impact of war was weighing heavily on them and their families, Canada’s Chief of Defence Staff challenged a group of Toronto-based philanthropists to raise some money to support them.

The following year, we held our first Tribute Dinner that brought 2,000 Canadians together, raising $2 million in one evening. That first dinner proved that Canadians are proud of our military, and are seeking ways, beyond wearing the poppy on Remembrance Day, to express their support. And the True Patriot Love Foundation was born.

Today we continue to honour the sacrifices of members of the Canadian Armed Forces, Veterans and their families in both times of peace and conflict. And we need your help.

True Patriot Love is uniquely positioned to be able to understand the greatest needs of our military families and then activate the resources required to deliver the most significant impact on a national scale.
