Who We Are

In January of 1997, fourteen African-American men gathered to discuss a common bond and vision for success.  All were Detroit natives; many had grown up together as close friends, sharing similar life experiences and finding success only after overcoming many obstacles.  The importance of these friendships became a turning point in their young lives and the basis for recognizing a need to help others.

Since its inception, Legacy Associates Foundation has built a force of leadership and support throughout the Metropolitan Detroit area.  Since 2002, the organization has grown its membership to thirty-one members in total. Whether serving as professionals, business executives, or community leaders, each of the current members have become an established example of dedicated service and integrity.  All members of Legacy Associates Foundation serve in a governing capacity within the organization and make contributions though program development and active volunteering.

As an organization, Legacy Associates Foundation is committed to a policy of non-discrimination and equal opportunity for all persons and toward that goal has developed an affirmative action policy. The organization's affirmative action policy is designed to ensure equal opportunity in employment and educational programs regardless of race, sex, sexual orientation, age, color, national origin, height, weight, marital status, religion or handicap.
