Legacy Week - Legacy

Legacy’s new advertising campaign

Legacy has a new advertising campaign designed to remind Australia that conflict/war is not a thing of the past, and that Legacy’s role is ongoing. Using the symbol of a war memorial statue, we poignantly convey the daily struggles of those Australian families touched by conflict.

View our TVC, radio and print advertisements here and read more about the story about the battle on the home front.

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 90,000 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 the Commonwealth Bank, Thales and Telstra, 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.
