RCA Regimental Fund

The RCA Regimental Fund (the Fund) is a non-public property (NPP) entity of the Canadian Armed Forces as defined by the National Defence Act.
It comprises monies collected for the purpose of supporting the non-public affairs of The Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery.

Such monies are derived mostly from voluntary contributions from serving members of the Regiment – primarily members of the regular component of the Regiment who subscribe to the fund on a monthly basis by pay allotment. Members of the reserve component may also contribute, although most choose to support their local unit fund instead. Similarly, retired members and friends of the Regiment may donate to the Fund although many prefer to give to the RCA Heritage Fund.

As a Canadian Armed Forces NPP entity, the RCA Regimental Fund is deemed by the Canada Revenue Agency to be a “qualified donee”. As such, contributions or donations to the Fund attract Official Income Tax Receipts issued by RHQ RCA on behalf of the Canadian Forces Morale & Welfare Services (CFMWS) Non-public Funds Accounting Office in Shilo, MB.

The RCA Regimental Fund is governed and managed in accordance with Canadian Armed Forces NPP regulations and the Fund constitution. Expenditures are further guided by the RCA Family Strategy.

Fund expenditures focus on supporting Line of Operation 3 of the RCA Family Strategy – Nurture the Family Institution.

Expenditures are also made in support of Line of Operation 4 – Connect with Canadians and, Line of Operation 5 – Celebrate Our Heritage.

Supporters are invited to make a general donation to the Regimental Fund which will be used for the support of such programmes, projects or activities as:
