True Patriot Love honours the sacrifices of members of the Canadian Forces, Veterans and their families.
For too many years our men and women in uniform, and their families, have lived and served far from the thoughts of most everyday Canadians. Our vision is to repair that disconnect – to permanently bridge the military and civilian worlds, to ensure always that our Canadian Forces men and women have private dollars at their disposal to address the various gaps inevitably left unfunded by government.

True Patriot Love is a national fundraising organization with a brand we’ll continue to build for the Canadian public over many years to come. Part of this effort entails clarifying our relationship with the constellation of other charitable organizations that provide philanthropic services to our military men and women. Many of these charities excel at program delivery. In turn, our group excels at fundraising.
Rather than granting funds to individuals, or their families, we are an umbrella organization that directs funds to the military charities that have the infrastructure and expertise to deliver focused programming. Included in our role is a duty to conduct the due diligence that ensures our funding is going where it’s needed most – a process that requires charities to go through a rigorous (yet not cumbersome) application process, and to report back to us that the money was appropriately spent.
True Patriot Love celebrates the selfless service of our soldiers and their families. Through generous donations, we have raised over $14 million in support of the Canadian military and their families. Last year, True Patriot Love has pledged $1 million to ensure the mental health and well-being of our military members, veterans and their families, and an additional $1 million for military family health and support, and for the physical health and rehabilitation of our injured military personnel and veterans.
