Our Mission

The Canadian Hero Fund provides educational scholarships to the children and spouses of fallen Canadian soldiers.

About Our Charity

The Canadian Hero Fund is a charitable organization dedicated to supporting Canadian military personnel and their families. The Canadian Hero Fund was founded by a group of students at the University of Toronto who were deeply impacted by the increasing number of Canadian casualties and the young families they left behind.

As a non-political civilian charity, the Canadian Hero Fund raises money through community, grassroots efforts. The Canadian Hero Fund also acts as a conduit for all Canadians to show their support and care for military families and their sacrifice.

Your donation to the Canadian Hero Fund represents your commitment to the brave men and women of the Canadian Forces, to the families of fallen soldiers, and to the children who have lost their Hero. By giving to the Canadian Hero Fund you can help keep their dreams alive.

If you have any questions please contact us at or call 1-888-602-3071.
