Every Dollar Counts
The Legacy Guild is a nonprofit fellowship group that provides college scholarships and mentorship to local students who have lost a parent. We honor the legacy of those who have died by helping send their children to college. Since our founding in 2012, and with the support of hundreds of individuals and local businesses throughout Lyons Township High School District 204, we have made a tremendous impact.
In 2022, The Legacy Guild reached the incredible milestone of awarding more than $1,500,000 in scholarships! Roughly 95% of every dollar we spend goes directly towards scholarships in the community.
Each Legacy Guild Scholar who is a full-time student is awarded a $3,000 scholarship renewable for up to four years of undergraduate college – a commitment of up to $12,000 per student.
What We Do
Think Big. Act Bigger.
