History of the PPCLI Foundation
For more than 100 years, soldiers of the Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry have been serving Canadians with honour and distinction. The PPCLI Foundation was founded to ensure that legacy of our proud military history lives on in future generations. Since its formation in 2011, the Foundation has raised in excess of $2 million in cash and in-kind donations.
These funds have been judiciously applied to several programs specific to supporting serving soldiers, veterans and their families, families of our fallen soldiers and youth education. In essence, the tradition of the PPCLI is woven into the fabric of our Canadian heritage and history for our soldiers, veterans and their families.
Governance – In setting its priorities the Foundation is guided by a very active membership led by a group of trustees who together have almost accumulated almost three hundred years of service with the Regiment. Our Patron, the Right Honourable Adrienne Clarkson, our Colonel in Chief takes an active interest in our activities as do our Vice Patrons, the Honorary Colonels of the Army, PPCLI and Loyal Edmonton Regiment, as well as the Lieutenant Governors of our four western provinces.
Our Legacy – Soldiers of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry have served Canada and Canadians for more than 100 years. Today, the Patricia’s represent the most of Canada’s ‘boots on the ground’ deployment both inside and outside of Canada. The Patricia’s have always been amongst the first in the field which has resulted in the regiment shouldering some of the heaviest of casualties. Building on this legacy of service to Canada the PPCLI Foundation has established a number of projects that enable its good work to continue in communities across Canada. Efforts are largely focused in Alberta due to the strong ties with the Cities of Edmonton and Calgary.
Your Support – Support from Canadians and businesses are key enablers to ensuring the success of Canada’s military and the PPCLI Foundation. Across Canada we have heroes both in uniform and behind the uniform in the form of military families, carrying the pride of Canada into the next generation.
We invite you to consider playing a pivotal role in keeping programs accessible to our heroes through your support to the Heroes Hockey Challenge. Support comes in various ways and we have included a number of packages to fit every budget and are open to Gift in Kind donations to meet our fundraising goal of reaching $100,000.
The Military Museums Foundation
The Military Museums Foundation is a non-profit organization that brings Canadian military heritage to life for thousands of Albertans each year through Alberta curriculum based education programs.
Military history is more than just dates and names of battles. By providing curriculum-based education programs, the Foundation supports The Military Museums’ mission to Remember, Preserve, and Educate.
The Military Museums Foundation helps over 8,000 school children each year to stay connected to our nation’s proud military heritage. We develop and deliver over two dozen education programs that explore Canada’s military history from the War of 1812 to recent conflicts in Afghanistan and the Middle East.
