We reached a milestone in 2020!

We surpassed one million dollars in college scholarships awarded!

Our Mission

We are a fellowship group that provides college scholarships and mentorship to local students who have lost a parent. (see Flyer).

Our Impact

We honor the legacy of those who have died by helping send their children to college. Since our inception in 2012, and with the amazing support of hundreds of supporters throughout District 204, we have made a tremendous impact.

The Legacy Guild is proud to announce that in 2020, we surpassed one million dollars in college scholarships awarded. Since our inception in 2012, we have provided scholarships to 176 scholars.

Each scholar currently receives $2,500 per year, renewable for four years of college – up to $10,000 per eligible scholar.

Although the number of scholars is continually growing, our support, so far, has maintained pace.


The Lagacy Guild

The Legacy Guild is a nonprofit with three priorities.

1. Fellowship
We provide fellowship opportunities for men including meetings to discuss important issues such as how to be a better father, husband and friend.

2. Scholarship
We provide college scholarships to students who live in Lyons Township District 204 and have lost a parent. Eligible students must live in District 204 but may attend high school elsewhere (click for info on the application including deadline).

3. Mentorship
We connect Legacy Guild Scholars with a broad network of supporters to help them find internships and jobs during and after college.

AmazonSmile will donate to the Legacy Guild on all your eligible purchases.
