To the Stan


To the Stan and Back is a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency and is responsible for donating over $200,000.00 in discounted gift certificates to serving Canadian Force members returning from Afghanistan. Additionally the charitable trust has donated $105,000.00 to Canadian Force Base Mess halls across the nation for electronic and or recreational equipment and several thousand dollars to Soldier On, Military Family Fund, CF Central Fund, Wounded warriors, Courageous Companions and UBC Veteran's Transition program. To the Stan and Back is one more tangible way to thank CF Members for their selfless sacrifice on our behalf.

One of the focal fundraisers for the organization is `Party under the Stars` an annual event held at the National Archives of Canada just off Parliament Hill. VIP guests from the political, military and entertainment world converge to support this worthy cause. Future fund raising efforts will focus on contributing to Canadian Forces Central Fund for post combat wellness programs.
`To the Stan and Back` was founded over 10 years ago by Cheri Elliott, a mother of a serving member with a heart to show Canadian Forces and front line responders how they are valued and appreciated. Cheri would like to encourage all Canadians to show their gratitude to our troops for giving up their freedom so that we may continue to enjoy ours.

Cheri was awarded the Queen's Diamond Jubilee medal for her service to Canadian Forces. In addition to this, Cheri launched a successful national campaign to have the 1999 BC Supreme Court ruling overturned that made the possession of child pornography legal. She currently works in the Parliament of Canada.
