From its humble beginnings in Los Angeles, Legacy Foundation has created philanthropic communities in cities around the world and now includes some of the world’s boldest thinkers, most respected innovators, and most successful entrepreneurs from venture-backed companies.
Legacy Foundation nourishes a culture in which financial achievements are only platforms on which to build a truer and more lasting success. Each of our members is driven by an urge to make the world a better place — together, they have the power to do just that.
We are successful, compassionate people who are more interested in person to person engagement than in auditorium settings & guest speakers.
Our events inject the value of a large conference into more intimate, familial environments. It’s a strategy that creates genuine opportunities for problem solving, relationship-building, and goal-oriented teamwork.
Legacy Foundation values high selectivity in it’s members and sponsors. Our events are attended by a diverse collection of leaders in a wide range of industries, and each member of Legacy Foundation is eager to give as much as he or she gains from the community we sustain.
Today, Legacy Foundation members are willing and able to pay forward their successes — they have each done well, but their primary interest is in doing good.
Attendees of previous Legacy Foundation events have included founders and directors of Applied Semantics, Flixster, Klout, Lookout, PriceGrabber, Priceline, Square, YouTube, Beachmint, non-profits like Kiva, the Prince of Saudi Arabia and many more of the fastest-growing companies and dynamic individuals on the planet.
We have been honored, humbled, and inspired to be a part of what has become a collection of the best and brightest minds on the planet. We are committed to fostering this community and dedicated to staying true to our core ethos.
The Legacy Foundation is about making a massive positive impact in the world, and nobody has ever built something great by themselves. The future is full of promise and we intend to help develop its endless potential.
