Poppy Fund

The two most important events on the Royal Canadian Legion calendar are the Service of Remembrance in November and the Poppy Campaign occurring for two weeks immediately preceding November 11.

The Poppy Campaign of Branch 475 raises money to:

Assist needy ex-service members and their dependent's

Provide bursaries to the children and grandchildren of veterans and

Help to ensure that our young people are kept aware of the sacrifices made by our veterans. 

Monies raised during the Poppy Campaign can also be used to :

a) Su​pport medical training and research, and the provision of community medical appliances which will help in the care of veterans.

b) Fund the purchasing, construction and maintenance of housing and care facilities for elderly disabled persons.

The money raised during the Poppy Campaign is held in the POPPY TRUST FUND is separate from Branch 475 general funds. The money held in the POPPY TRUST FUND can only be used for those purposes stipulated by the Royal Canadian Legion, Dominion Command.

Donations can be made to the POPPY TRUST FUND during the Poppy Campaign or at any time during the year. We are pleased to announce that the POPPY TRUST FUND, BR. 475 has received Charitable Designation Receipts over $10.00 can be issued for Income Tax purposes upon request.

Public Report on Status of Poppy Trust Fund

  Approximately one year ago, we were informed that the fiscal year for the Poppy Trust Fund would change from October 1 – September 30 to January 1 -December 31 starting October 1, 2021.

  Recently, I was given the directive to inform the public of the financial status of the Poppy Trust Fund “Prior to commencing the annual Poppy Campaign”. The information was to include finances from October 1, 2021 to December 31, 2022. Being as the Poppy Campaign starts on October 28, 2022 this would be totally impossible.

I have included, herewith, the report from October 1, 2021 to October 1, 2022.

Balance in Br. 475 Poppy Trust Fund as of October 1, 2021: $1441.89

Income from Campaign and all other sources:  $5765.34


Sub total: $7207.23

Campaign Expenses: $617.99

Donations from Fund: $ 4500.00


Total expenses and donations: $5117.99

Closing balance as of October 1, 2022: $2089.24

  At year end, ie. after December 31, 2022, I will present an updated report for the Poppy Trust Fund, Branch 475, Toledo.
