Make a Donation and Support the Vimy Foundation

At the Vimy Foundation we are dedicated to creating opportunities for young Canadians to learn about our First World War legacy, as symbolized with the victory at Vimy nearly 100 years ago. That’s why we develop education programs such as the Beaverbrook Vimy Prize, the Vimy Pilgrimage Award, and the Vimy Ridge Week at Encounters with Canada, to help youth learn more about the sacrifices made by an entire generation 100 years ago –a time when Canada became a nation.

The Vimy Foundation raises funds for its educational youth-oriented initiatives thanks to the generous contributions of private donors, corporate/municipal sponsors and participating schools, as well as Vimy Pilgrimage Medal and Vimy Pin sales.

The Foundation actively seeks your support. Donors can receive a tax benefit, since the Foundation is a registered charity under the Income Tax Act. We are able to issue tax receipts for any donation over $10, and the federal government has eliminated capital gains tax when you donate publicly listed securities to official charities like the Vimy Foundation. Please contact us directly at 514.904.1007 if you are interested in discussing different options to help you achieve your philanthropic goals.
