Gold Coast Legacy was formed in 1949 and we aim to keep the promise by providing long-term social, emotional, developmental and financial support to the families of Australia’s veterans. We do this with the help and dedication of volunteers and local communities.
Gold Coast Legacy works hard to assist the partners and children of veterans, who gave their lives or health in recognised military service, to fully realise their potential. We care for those in need, believing adversity in service should not lead to financial or social disadvantage.
Your support can help these families in their time of greatest need. Together, we can serve the families that have given so much for us.
