The funds disbursed by the Military Fund for Blind Children come from some very generous corporate donors, funds raised at incredible local events, and kind public donations.
Every Military Police unit, regardless of size or geographic location, has a Blind Fund representative. These representatives are all volunteers and continually coordinate various fund-raising activities throughout the year. BBQs at local detachments, Christmas concerts, and Jail n’ Bail events are all examples of some of our smaller fundraising events. Other larger events include the Annual Hockey Tournament hosted by the Military Police at Canadian Forces Base Valcartier or the Annual Golf Tournament held in the National Capital Region. One of the Fund’s largest fundraisers is the Military Police National Motorcycle Relay.
The MPFBC remains unique in Canada as the only officially authorized “military” charity in the country. As a recognized charity we have CRA accreditation which allows us to issue official receipts for income tax purposes for any donation over $20.00.
We always welcome any kind of donations. If you are interested in making a donation please reach out to the regional representative for your area.
