2021 Stewardship Report

2021 Stewardship Report


Legacy Endowment Community Foundation – formerly The Community Foundation of North San Diego County – formed its first Board of Directors in 1994. Today, Legacy has grown its endowment and management base to more than $16.5 million* and in the past 26 years, has awarded more than $9.4 million in grants and scholarships. As the 2020 pandemic continued into 2021, we found new and renewed ways to make connections solid, sustainable, and robust. New board members were recruited to deepen relationships throughout the area and beyond. CONNECT, our monthly news brief was introduced to deliver relevant news, and our social media channels were revitalized. All of these communication outlets and information resources are being built and re-built around YOU, with the needs of our community and growing region in mind.

It is our sincere hope this report provides greater insight into Legacy’s work in supporting a multitude of charitable partners who fill the humanitarian needs of our area. We truly appreciate our donors, volunteers, community leaders, and friends who promote Legacy. Last but not least, we celebrate the vision and tenacity of our founders who launched a bold vision that a quarter-century later, continues to support all the vibrant, historic, community-centered, and cultural aspects of this beautiful north county region.
