The RCMP Foundation (formerly known as the Mounted Police Foundation) is an independent, arm's-length, charitable organization that initiates, develops and supports community programs across Canada for the benefit of children and youth at risk.
Future prospects for thousands of less-fortunate children and youth look brighter, thanks to RCMP Foundation partnerships with local community groups and the ongoing voluntary services of RCMP members. Our programs create awareness and prevent drug and alcohol abuse, bullying, violence and suicide. We build confidence, self-esteem, competence and character, and equip young people with the life skills they need to become contributing members of a safer, healthier society.
Funds are generated through donations, corporate and private partnerships, the licensing program of official RCMP products, and net proceeds from The Mountie shop. www.themountieshop.ca.
