Legacy is a charity providing services to Australian families suffering financially and socially after the incapacitation or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service. We currently care for around 90,000 widows and 1,900 children and disabled dependants throughout Australia.


Give to Legacy before financial year end!

Little Isaac has never met his Dad. A doctor in the Australian Army, Dr Peter Zariffa died while his wife Miriam was just five-weeks-pregnant which is when she was introduced to Legacy. Today Isaac is seven-years-old and they are both still very active and appreciative members of our community.

The 2015 financial year has been another big one for Legacy and with tax time approaching why not offset your income by making us a donation?

At Legacy, our vision today is the same as it was when we formed back in 1923, that no dependant of an Australian Defence Force member suffers financial or social disadvantage as a result of the death or incapacity of a family member.

The dependants of World War 1, World War II, the Korean War, Malayan Emergency and Vietnam War are still cared for. In addition to the peacekeeping operations in Bougainville, East Timor and the Solomon Islands, the more modern campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan remind us all that Legacy’s vital work is ongoing.

Today Legacy cares for around 90,000 veterans’ dependants, ranging in age from three months to 109 years of age, and with over 350,000 veterans from all conflicts alive in Australia today, the task is not going away in the foreseeable future.

We are very thankful for your generosity and know the Legacy torch will continue to burn in the hearts of our committed supporters.

MASTERCHEF GIVEAWAY

Congratulations to the three very lucky winners of the MasterChef whites signed by popular judges Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris!

Christine Sinclair from Victoria, Dr Tri Pham from NSW and Peter Rigby from Western Australia were randomly selected and your prizes will be posted out this week. The popular food show filmed a very special episode at Puckapunyal Military Area late last year and featured Defence personnel and members of the Legacy family.

Thank you to everybody who donated, YOUR support helps US support the 90,000 families of veterans who have given their life or their health for Australia.


Letter to our Corporate Partners

To our valued corporate supporter,

In view of recent publicity around the use of the word ANZAC in commemorative centenary events, we would like to take this opportunity to reiterate our sincere appreciation for your ongoing support in raising much needed awareness and funds for the charitable work of Legacy Australia.

Paint for a Mate Project has hit Bega
Berger is applying fresh coats of colour to 40 homes around Australia as part of the company’s support of Legacy and war widow Mavis Wheeler is the latest to have her home upgraded. Mrs Wheeler lost her husband Leslie as a result of his army service and since moving to Bega from Queensland has had regular visits from Legacy’s Peter Florance. She said Legacy’s support and advice was a real comfort – but there was one phone call that would prove more surprising than most.
