Give a Vimy for Vimy

Give a “Vimy” – the Canadian $20 bill – to support our Vimy 2017 Campaign. To commemorate the centennial of the Battle of Vimy Ridge in April 2017, the Vimy Foundation is planning a number of activities in both France and Canada.

The Vimy centennial coincides with the 150th birthday of Canada and will also be a time of celebration. The 100th anniversary of Vimy, falling as it does in 2017, will be one of the most highly recognized milestones for Canada that year. The 2017 Campaign provides an opportunity to remember the legacy of Vimy Ridge, to spread awareness of Canada’s coming-of-age on the global stage, and to celebrate our identity and pride to be Canadian.

In exchange for your donation to support the Vimy 2017 Campaign, you will receive a Vimy Pin and your name will be added to the list of Vimy 2017 supporters, along with the names of those for whom the donation is made in memory. Donations of $20 and higher will receive a donation receipt for income tax purposes.


Minimum Price: $20.00

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.
