The Canadian Battlefields Foundation needs your help – one more time. Help us finish the job of keeping alive the sacrifices made by young Canadians in the Second World War  through a bursary  program, to provide future generations of Canadians, the teachers and leaders of tomorrow, with the knowledge and experience to continue the work we started.


Students’ field trips are funded primarily from income generated by the Foundation’s Bursary Fund.  Participating students are each expected to pay a part of  the cost of the tour.

Donations and pledges to the Fund reached $750 000 by May 2001.  It is essential that the Foundation increase the Fund to $1 000 000 if it is to continue supporting twelve students each year in perpetuity.  When the Fund reaches $1 000 000 it will be self-sufficient

The number of student applications each year is a good sign that young Canadians are becoming ever more conscious of this important part of their heritage.

The Foundation expends all but a small fraction of donations received on the Memorial Garden and the bursary fund.
