KW Legacy formed in 2014 with a goal of using its founder’s networks and skills to accelerate start-up charity initiatives in the community and leave a lasting legacy in Waterloo Region.
Legacy's first initiative "Golf For Scholarships" has raised over $430,000 in five short years, and has distributed 45 scholarships - $257,500 to deserving students within Waterloo Region.
Legacy Scholarship recipients enrich the lives of others by demonstrating elite community leadership skills.
KW Legacy continues to work with scholarship recipients in a mentoring role, and will open applications for the 2020 scholarship awards January 2020 in all regional high schools.
Our second initiative, Top Home Chefs, an annual gala dinner cooking contest held in late April each year at St. George Hall in Waterloo has raised $90,000 in 2 years with funds raised supporting Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council.
KW Legacy recently announced a 3rd initiative focussed on local housing and a 4th initiative on men's mental health. Please see Legacy initiatives section on website for more information.
