Donate to the Poppy Fund

Have you had a chance to visit our beautiful museum? Taken in a meal in our cafe or come to partake in the entertainment in the lounge? Perhaps you have come in and had the opportunity to speak with some of the veterans and want to help out? No matter the reason, your donations are always greatly appreciated.

Gift of Stock & Securities

Do you hold securities that have increased in value in recent years? Did you know that when you donate them directly to The Legion, you don’t have to pay capital gains tax and you’re able to give the full value of your securities?

Legacy Gift

There are many ways to plan your legacy gift and to ensure your wishes are honoured. From wording your will to creating charity reminder trusts and more.

Remembrance Day

The Regina Branch is responsible for planning and executing services and ceremonies that honour the sacrifices made by Canadian Veterans. Our annual Remembrance Day services take place at Brandt Centre (televised) and at the Cenotaph in Victoria Park each November 11. We also commemorate D-Day each year on the first Sunday in June.
