The Legacy family comprises: Legatees, Volunteers, Staff, and Widows.
Our community at Legacy is devoted to enhancing the lives of families of veterans who have served in war, peacekeeping and humanitarian missions and who have died or become incapacitated either on service or subsequently.
Legacy is supported by the work of our dedicated Legatees, volunteers, staff members and widows. These individuals make up a dynamic community of people, ranging from schoolchildren to senior citizens. It is with their assistance that Legacy is able to continue working to support the dependants of incapacitated and deceased veterans.Get Involved
There are many ways to get involved and help out at Legacy. We provide opportunities for people of all ages, genders and backgrounds to get together and support the families of deceased and incapacitated war veterans. Among these are opportunities to volunteer, fund raise, leave a bequest, sponsor and donate.
