A Legacy of Giving serves more than 6,000 students in three different school districts and independent schools. We partner with teachers, counselors and administrators at each of the 45 schools we work with to provide a curriculum and framework for youth philanthropy education. We give structure and support for schools to incorporate service-based learning into their classrooms and real-world practice to social and emotional learning competencies. Students from all socio-economic backgrounds are provided the opportunity to contribute to their community and lead philanthropic efforts on their campuses and in their neighborhoods.



“Legacy teaches you how to teach the kids, not just do a service project. There’s a difference.”
