Recent Major Gifts

Mottershead Battlefield Tour Endowment

A transformational tour of the First and Second World War Canadian Battlefields in France and Belgium, providing 28 students from all disciplines an extraordinary “out of the classroom” development opportunity. The Mottershead’s  (Class of 1962) provided the RMC Foundation with a major gift to create an endowment for this tour to ensure it can continue in perpetuity.

A major gift to Support Recreational Clubs Endowment

Currently, there are 24 RMC Recreation Clubs available on a voluntary basis to over 600 Officer Cadets annually. Club supervisors and the Athletic Department staff provide guidance as the Cadets gain experience in all aspects of planning, coordinating, and executing these activities. They will also have a chance to experience competition, team building and leadership by participating in events beyond the mandate of the Canadian Forces.  A $430,000 stock transfer donation, from a member of the Class of 1962, to support the Recreational Clubs Endowment provides assurance that the program can continue long into the future.
