In keeping with our company's core values as well as sharing a common allegiance towards community, service and leadership, League Assets Corp. is pleased to announce it is joining with Navy personnel past and present in the construction of a monument to mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Royal Canadian Navy. League is proud to be among the Victoria business leaders in creating this lasting legacy for further generations -- a visible and permanent link between the Royal Canadian Navy and its home community.

The monument, entitled, "The Homecoming", to be erected on Victoria's Inner Harbour, will feature two life-sized figures -- a sailor, returning home from overseas, kneeling with arms outstretched toward his daughter, who is running to meet her father's embrace. Etched into one of the adjacent stones will be League's official Coat of Arms, granted in 2007 by the Heraldic Authority of Canada under the auspices of the Governor General.

"Generations of Canadian sailors are owed a debt of gratitude for keeping our country safe for more than a century," said League's Founding Partner Adam Gant. "We at League are especially pleased to honour these men and women and are proud to help sponsor this tangible symbol of their courage and sacrifice especially on the milestone of this centennial celebration."

Hundreds of bricks inscribed with the names of donors or their loved-ones will surround the monument. League is not only sponsoring its construction, it is encouraging its 1,700 Member-Partners to purchase bricks in the name of their family members at this link.

"League's mission is to help create and secure Intergenerational Wealth™ for the families of our Member-Partners, which clearly includes a wealth of capital," explains co-founder Emanuel Arruda. "But equally important is the perpetuation of a family's wealth of core values and traditions. Supporting this philanthropic effort is an excellent opportunity to promote, reinforce and celebrate these values, while leaving a lasting legacy as well."

All bricks purchased by Member-Partners and display the words "League Member" under the family name, will be subsidized by League Assets Corp. in conjunction with the League Foundation. The League Foundation is the philanthropic arm of League Assets Corp. Its principal objective is to tackle homelessness, poverty and the betterment of society -- at home and around the world.
