Our Program

A Legacy of Giving uses a five-step approach when teaching philanthropy:

  1. Learn
  2. Internalize
  3. Advocate
  4. Act
  5. Reflect

Austin-area educators integrate our framework and curriculum into their classrooms, encouraging students to actively engage in service. Through Legacy’s partnership with schools and students, youth receive education on a variety of social concerns and understand how they can make an impact and support their community. Students realize their passions and potential for philanthropy, regardless of their socio-economic background.

Student Impact since 2007

  • 48,030 students have been involved with our programs
  • 389,180 pounds of food have been collected and donated to The Central Texas Food Bank to nourish Central Texans affected by hunger and food insecurity
  • 3,000 citizens of Burundi have access to clean water for the rest of their lives
  • 51,000 warm coats have been collected and distributed to Austin-area kids in need


“When children become engaged in their community, they feel more invested and over time continue to give.”
