Economic Development


McGuffey Inter-Generational Gardens

M.I.G began as a Community beautification project in 2015, within the North Linden Area.  Our strategic goal has been too maintain the lots for cleanliness and use the land to teach Urban Gardening.  Our plots fall within an area of the City for which the USDA would classify as a Food Desert Zone.  Given this reality leaders within LUF are focused on raising awareness about food sustainability and healthy options for families in the Community.  Our Impact has been great but we have a lot more work to do.  Join us in the Garden at 2510 McGuffey Rd. Columbus OH 43219!


Legacy Connectors

Legacy Connectors is a financial endowment initiative, backed by Legacies United Foundation to support young and Seasoned  Athletes across Central Ohio. This effort has already benefited several families attached to the TCI Cares initiative.  Our goal with Legacy Connectors is to ensure youth and their families who may be struggling financially have access and the opportunity to participate in quality physical activities and wellness programs.  Staying active and engaged through sports and or leisure activities has proven to cultivate healthy relationships and personal development.  This is due to the rich sharing of knowledge, skills and abilities of the participants.  Therefore we believe it is our responsibility to try and remove such financial barriers to achieve the intended intergenerational results.  Our initiative additionally provides support to participants in the realm of mental health.  Legacy Connectors is concerned with helping participants find their strengths on and off the playing field.

Community Outreach


Fund-Raising & Volunteering

At Legacies United Foundation we have been able to thrive based off our rich culture of servant leadership.  A servant-leader focuses primarily on the growth and well-being of people and the communities to which they belong.  We are a Faith-based organization that takes pride in creating opportunities for volunteers to pour into lives of others as well as our Community.  We run a soup kitchen, several concession stands at The Ohio State University in partnership with the Levy Restaurant Group amongst other activities.  Our goal is to steadily increase the capacity for intergenerational relationships, program development and shared resources.

Legacy Research

Today we live in one of the most vibrant complex societies due in part to the growth of technology, arts and culture.  The impact of this stimuli on our relationships and engagement within our communities has been widespread.  This current reality is driving our Legacy Research Initiative.  We hope to uncover facts, and trends into how we may best connect, support and promote various generational cohorts.

With any research a systematic investigation is essential in order to reach new conclusions.  The results of our research is available to the public and focuses on aging and senior services as well as youth engagement to name a few.  We hope our work leads to intergenerational  public policies, private philanthropy and corporate advancement.  If you are interested in research join our Team!!!!  Were In this Together!
