The American Legion Legacy Fund
As an unfortunate consequence of Operation Iraqi Freedom and the global war on terror, many children of our active-duty military personnel are now members of single-parent families. We are raising funds to ensure that higher education will be a reality for these families, but we need your help.
It is estimated that over 11,000 children have lost a parent in the war overseas. That number continues to grow each day. The Legion is actively working to ensure that all those children who want a post-secondary education will be provided one.
Every year The American Legion Riders host a national 'Legacy Run' to the National Convention. Profits from the Legacy Run, donations collected along the way and private donations made year round are what make up the available funds for the Legacy Fund.
