What is Legacy Week?

Legacy Week is Australia’s iconic fundraising campaign which began in 1942. It is also known for its Badge Day and the iconic badges offered as a token of appreciation for the donation made by the public.

Legacy Week is the annual national appeal to raise awareness and funds for the families of our incapacitated and deceased Veterans.
It is held in towns and cities big and small across Australia and supported by young and old.

The funds raised from Legacy Week help Legacy continue to assist approximately 70,000 widows and 1,900 children and people with disabilities Australia-wide, with essential services such as, counselling, special housing, medical, advocacy and social support.

Public support will also help Legacy nurture children’s education, by contributing towards their school fees, books, uniforms, and recreational activities to aid their self development and confidence.

There are thousands of Australian Defence Force personnel currently deployed overseas. Legacy stands ready to assist their families should the worst happen.

Help these families by becoming a volunteer or donor now. All funds raised will help continue our essential role in the community.

Legacy would like to thank our National Partners, members of the ADF, and the many volunteers, schools, services and businesses for their support of our annual Appeal. It is the lifeblood to our existence.

For enquiries please contact your local Legacy Club.
