The Legacy Education Foundation was established in 1978 as a 501(c)3 public charity. It has realized many accomplishments during its forty-year existence and the years of investments in educational and leadership programs are paying off and changing the lives of young men as planned. Since its inception, the foundation has contributed to the scholarship funds of Fisk University, Tennessee State University, and to the United Negro College Fund. In 1999, the Foundation established a $10,000 Tuition Assistance Scholarship at Fisk University, and in 2003 it established a $25,000 Tuition Assistance Scholarship Endowment Fund at Tennessee State University.
Funds given to The Legacy Education Foundation further the educational and philanthropic mission of the Foundation by promoting leadership, and by providing educational scholarship programs for the benefit of qualified candidates. The Foundation recognizes students who have demonstrated leadership skills, academic achievement and a commitment to community service.
Your support makes it possible to help prepare tomorrow’s leaders and for academically talented youth to experience a vital aspect of college life.
The work of the foundation is made possible by the generous support of corporations, local businesses, friends and contributions of Fraternity members. We appreciate the trust placed in its endeavors. A fifteen-member volunteer board of directors guides the foundation’s efforts.

Whether you make a single gift or schedule reoccurring monthly or annual gifts, all donations are greatly appreciated. Contributions made to the foundation for its educational and charitable purposes offer tax advantages to donors.
