Embrace our community - Sustain our Future

When complex issues arise, Legacy Foundation works with caring community members - like YOU - to find adaptive solutions and create positive change! Our work is focused on cultivating a stronger, healthier and more prosperous Cowley County area by fostering informed leadership through Leadership Cowley County, strengthening our non-profit organizations and encouraging volunteerism.

Whether providing board training, working with school programs or convening stakeholders around critical issues, your Legacy Foundation is actively working to produce sustainable answers to community challenges while optimizing our area's limited resources.

We are able to accomplish this work by building endowments and connecting donors to the critical needs in our community. We think of it in three easy steps - GIVE, GROW and GRANT!

The vision of the Active Play Matching Grant is to provide a space for public elementary schoolchildren in Cowley County to enjoy vigorous exercise through organized games and unstructured play before, during and after the school day. This grant is a 1:1 matching opportunity up to $2,000. One grant will be available to each of the thirteen (13) public elementary schools in Cowley County for the purpose of enhancing built environment and/or equipment purchase that provide and promote schoolchildren to be more physically active in order to address the rising rate of obesity in our area. Application due by March 15, 2019.
