Legacy Week Appeal

Buy a badge or make a donation to support this iconic Australian appeal.

Little Badge, Big Impact.

Buy a badge and help us support the families of our veterans this Legacy Week 1 September – 7 September 2024.

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.

The Legacy badge is a special emblem of support for our veterans’ families, symbolising our nation’s greatest values of mateship, compassion and fairness.

Legacy badges may be little but the funds they raise make a big impact in the lives of our veterans’ families.

Legacy Week is a time to give back to the families of those who have given so much.



Kathy's war widow mother introduced her to Legacy after her veteran father passed away. Legacy ensures Kathy is supported for life and can live independently despite her intellectual disability.

About Legacy

Featured story The Beckwith Family

Supporting the families of our veterans

In 1923 Legacy made a promise to help veterans’ families carry on with their lives after the loss or injury of their loved one. It was a simple promise that Legacy keeps today; providing the same stability, guidance and assistance that a partner would normally provide to his or her family.

Today, Legacy supports 43,000 partners and children of veterans who gave their lives or health serving our country.

Support our veterans’ families

With your help, we can continue to support families who come to us in their darkest moment and give hope to provide them with a new life.
