Founded over 60 years ago by an inspired group of Canadian philanthropists living in London, the Maple Leaf Trust continues to be the premier Canadian charity in the UK that honors our past and helps promote our future.
We are an independent charity that is run by volunteers. We rely entirely on donations to continue provide assistance to our WWII Canadian veteran family in the UK when they are in need as well.
We also provide support in its entirety to continue the work of the Canadian Centennial Scholarship Fund (CCSF) so that outstanding students from across Canada who are enrolled in post-graduate programmes can study in the UK.
Since our foundation, the Maple Leaf Trust has aspired to do nothing less than honor the enormous contributions of our veterans as well as look to the future by providing scholarships to the next generation of exceptionally talented Canadians – ultimately to strengthen the partnership between these two great countries.
Maple Leaf Ball is our premier fundraising event, which in 2017 will attract over 400 people in one evening and will raise critical funds to help us continue to provide support to our veterans and to our students via scholarships.
