The Ontario Command Branches and Ladies' Auxiliaries Charitable Foundation, a registered charity, is a partnership of the branches of the Royal Canadian Legion and their Auxiliaries in Ontario Command.
Branches and auxiliaries, through poppy tagging and activities such as bingo, break open tickets, raffles and clubhouse operations, fund the foundation. Through our collective strength, we are able to fund projects, which are normally beyond the means of individual branches.
The foundation funds are used for the following:
- Operation of the Ontario Command Service Bureau
- Veterans welfare
- Programs for Aging Veterans
- Medical Research
- Medical Equipment
- Other purposes of a charitable or benevolent nature, as approved from time to time by the Board of Directors.
Hospitals, clinics, long term care facilities, fire departments, and other not-for-profit organizations involved in health care may make applications for funding to the foundation.
