Truth, Duty, Valour Campaign 2016 Update

Truth, Duty, Valour Campaign 2016 Update

The RMC Foundation launched our Truth, Duty, Valour Campaign in late September and have had tremendous support in only a few short months.  We are close to our Campaign goal of $300,000 in support of the Colleges, but we still need your help in order to reach our target by 31 December 2016.

Since the launch of the TDV Campaign your donations have funded various projects at both RMCC and RMC Saint-Jean totalling over $13,000 – in just the past 2 months!!  These activities include a History Trip to Boston to oversee the recent US Election, a Sailing Club Regatta to USNA, fees for two renowned French Guest Speakers to give lectures to Cadets and funding for the Cultural Heritage Week activities for Cadets at RMC Saint-Jean – just to name a few!

NO DONATION AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL WHEN IT COMES TO ENHANCING EXCELLENCE

You wouldn’t think that a small donation of $350 could go far to enhance the leadership and athleticism of our Officer Cadets – but it does!  Would you believe that $350 funded 8 members of the RMCC Sailing Team to participate in the United States Naval Academy 2016 Keelboat Promotional Regatta in Annapolis in October?  This small donation provided the RMCC competitive sailors with the opportunity to experience collegiate level competition internationally on modern race boats provided by USNA.  This event enhanced the college experience of the cadets by providing opportunities for personal development as athletes and for the respective skippers of each boat, 26885 Benjamin Antworth (2017) and 27411 Brendan Puddington (2018), an incredible leadership experience.

Your donation to the TDV Campaign will allow the RMC Foundation to provide flexible funding options to the Colleges in order to support the most important needs of our Future Leaders.  Last year alone the RMC Foundation funded $375,000 of the Colleges financial requests from the TDV Fund. The projects / activities supported by TDV Funding cannot be funded from our current Class Funds, Endowments, or other restricted accounts.

As 2016 is quickly coming to an end, there is still time to donate to the Truth, Duty, Valour Campaign.  All donations are eligible for a 2016 charitable tax receipt, if they are received before 31 December 2016.

There are 3 easy ways to donate:

  1. Online at www.rmcfoundation.ca

Thank you for your continued support of excellence at the Royal Military Colleges.
