Legacy Associates Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to providing programs that exemplify academic achievement, economic empowerment and community service for youth of all ethnic backgrounds. Our “Let’s Start A Business” Youth Entrepreneurship Program is our marquee program and is provided to 4-12th graders. The program teaches students the process and benefits of starting and operating their own business. Our community service programs unite young adults with surrounding neighborhoods, friends and volunteer organizations. We communicate a responsibility in giving back and educate students about the value of philanthropy. We also provide financial assistance to high school graduates who attend college and maintain an ongoing system of support and mentorship during their college tenure and beyond. Of all the embodied Legacy Associates Foundation ideals, the most important is that “we seek not merely to inspire and inform, but to enable and empower”.
