About us

About us - Canberra Legacy

Club history

Legacy is an independent organisation of veterans, servicemen and women, and volunteers from the community who share the ideals of the founding Legatees. We are dedicated to the care of the dependents of Australia’s servicemen and women who have died in the service of their country or subsequently as a result of that service.

The Legacy Club of Canberra was inaugurated on Anzac Day 1928 with 32 members following the establishment of the first club in Melbourne in 1923. Since then, the club has grown steadily, and today Canberra Legacy includes the Yass/Boorowa Group with around 180 members. Club members are called Legatees.

We are incorporated in the ACT and adopted our latest constitution in 2007. The Club’s business is conducted by a Board, which comprises the President, the immediate past President, two Vice-Presidents, Secretary, Treasurer, two elected members and the chairs of the various committees.


Who we Support

In 2015, we look after nearly 1300 widows, children and disabled dependents in the Canberra and Yass/Boorowa communities.
