The Air Cadet League of Canada, Ontario Provincial Committee is a civilian, volunteer-led, not for profit organization sanctioned by the National Air Cadet League of Canada and in partnership with the Department of National Defence, to administer and support the Air Cadet Program across Ontario.
At the local level, the Squadron Sponsor, Dunsdon Legion Branch 461 in Brantford and the 104 Starfighter Support Committee works with the Squadron staff to offer a comprehensive training experience.
Although the core activities are funded through DND, local squadrons offer extra optional activities. Each year, the Squadron needs to raise funds for our training, transportation and field-related activities that are not funded by DND.
For 104 RCACS these include many discretional activities throughout the year to enliven the overall Cadet experience. These are funded largely by our own efforts and include such things as;
- Drill Team
- Effective Speaking and Debate
- Jr and Sr Ground School
- Flag Party
- Pipes and Drums band
Funds for these activities must be raised locally.
104 Starfighter is also a separate registered charity and welcome direct donations. In exchange a personal or corporate tax receipt for any such donation can be issued. Some employers have corporate matching programs, thus leveraging your personal donation even more, so please think of us as year-end approaches and include this in your overall gift-giving and tax-planning considerations.
