About True Patriot Love Foundation :

Founded in 2009, True Patriot Love Foundation (TPL) bridges gaps in government funding to support Canadian military personnel and their families. Its mission is to inspire every Canadian to contribute to the resilience and well-being of Canadian military and Veteran families. Leveraging its expertise in fundraising, TPL has provided more than $18m to support military families and community-based programs across Canada since 2009. TPL Foundation’s programs include: family health and support; mental health and well-being; veterans transition (including physical health and rehabilitation); and research and innovation.

True Patriot Love granted $1.6m to 33 veteran and military charities in F2016. The five largest grants were: $225k to Prospect Human Services, $186k to Veterans Transition Network, $135k to Prince's Operation Entrepreneur, $117k to Outward Bound Canada, and $100k to Halifax Military Resource Centre to support the Strongest Families Institute. The average grant size was $48k. TPL’s grants were 53% of all program and grant disbursements in F2016.

Financial Review:

True Patriot Love Foundation is a big-cap charity with $6.8m in donations and special events fundraising in 2016. Administrative costs were 7% of revenues and fundraising costs were 32% of donations. For every $1 donated, 61 cents went to the cause, falling outside of Charity Intelligence’s reasonable range for overhead spending. TPL Foundation has $2.1m in funding reserves which can cover just over 8 months of programs and grants, indicating a need for funding.
