Raise money for Support Our Troops / Royal Canadian Benevolent Fund
The Royal Canadian Naval Benevolent Fund (RCNBF) was created to alleviate distress and promote the well-being of individuals who serve or who have served in the Naval Forces of Canada, and their families. Providing financial assistance to the naval community is the reason of our existence. This year marks the RCNBF’s 77th anniversary of providing assistance to naval families. The RCNBF has served the naval forces of Canada through distress loans, grants, and educational support programs to qualified naval personnel and their dependents. During the period we have assisted over 40,000 people and given out over 19 million dollars. In the past year alone, we have assisted 201 qualified applicants and given out $345,264.
The RCNBF is able to act quickly to provide financial support in times of urgent need, which is its primary mission. It can often provide “last resort” assistance, help that may not necessarily be covered under other programs. Some of the funds are used for much-needed repairs to homes, or for personal care items that greatly enhance quality of life.
The RCNBF is always ready to assist members and their families by giving them helpful advice in rearranging their personal affairs, and to help guide them through the application process for government programs or institutions, other public agencies or private sources for aid to which the applicant may be entitled. Other programs include bursaries and scholarships for students and vocational training.
Support Our Troops is the official charitable cause of the Canadian Armed Forces and a qualified donee in the Her Majesty in the right of Canada.
It was established to meet the unique needs and special challenges faced by members of the Canadian Armed Forces community as a result of military service. It provides a platform to allow a range of supporters to show their care, compassion and support to serving members, veterans and their families.
Support Our Troops is the official program providing financial support and assistance to Canadian Armed Forces members, veterans and their respective families in a number of important and often life-changing ways that are not provided by core public funding.
The two principal objectives of Support Our Troops are supporting:
- Soldier On - care of members with physical and/or mental illness or injury
- Family First - building family resilience
