Get Involved

There are so many ways you can support the families of our veterans. 

Help the promise live on.

In 1923, Legacy made a promise to help families after the loss or injury of a loved one in military service. To this day, we still ensure these families always have someone to turn to for support.

There are so many ways you can help the promise live on. Whether you host a fundraising event, make a donation, or join Legacy as a volunteer, your support will have a real impact on the families of our fallen and injured veterans.

Ways you can get involved

We need your help to ensure the promise lives on for the families of Australian Defence Force servicemen and women in times of great need.

Signature fundraising campaigns

Legacy is there for those we serve, each and every day. During key national commemorative times, Legacy calls on the public to share in our Legacy of service.

Anzac Day

Anzac Day is a significant day of the year for all Australians but none more so than those who have lost a loved one who has served our nation. It is a time to recognise the sacrifices of our servicemen and women and their families.

Legacy Week

The Legacy Week appeal has been running since the 1940’s and is a time for all Australians to show their support for the widows and children whose loved ones have served our country.

Remembrance Day

As the nation pauses to reflect on the sacrifices of our veterans on Remembrance Day, November 11, please also spare a thought for their families.
