The mission of A Legacy of Giving is to empower children through philanthropy education and youth philanthropy programs to become more engaged in improving their communities and world.

We believe empowering children through philanthropy education to become more engaged in improving their communities and world will grow a generation of givers.  If we help children learn to be compassionate at their earliest ages, they will continue to be engaged in their communities and offer their gifts of time, talent and treasure as adults.

Today, A Legacy of Giving provides philanthropy education, service learning and civic engagement in a school-based setting in both public and private schools in Central Texas with TEKS-compliant curricula (i.e. curricula meeting or exceeding all state and local public school standards).


To grow a generation of givers.

A Legacy of Giving was founded in 2007 is an innovative education and service learning program, a 501(c)(3) public charity.

A Legacy of Giving is a thriving organization in Central Texas that, in the 2017-2018 school year, will reach students in grades K-12 from Austin ISD, Manor ISD, Round Rock ISD and independent schools.


Our programs prove that students are embracing philanthropy as part of their curriculum and we’re excited to see how much they want to make a difference.
