Support Our Troops is the official charitable cause of the Canadian Armed Forces.
Support Our Troops operates within Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services to meet the unique needs and special challenges faced by members of the Canadian Armed Forces community as a result of military service. It provides a platform to allow a range of supporters to show their care, compassion and support to serving members, veterans and their families.
Recognized by its trademarked Yellow Ribbon, Support Our Troops provides financial support and assistance through various grants and programs. It is the most direct way for Canadians to support the recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration of members with a physical and/or mental illness or injury and to contribute to empowering family resiliency.
Support Our Troops and Soldier On programs are supported by donations from individuals and corporations, foundations, third party community fundraising events, Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) signature events: Army Run, Navy Bike Ride, Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) Run, proceeds from sales, and Yellow Ribbon merchandise sales and partnerships.
Your support to serving and former members and their families makes a difference in a number of important and often life-changing ways that are not provided by core public funding. Thank you.
