About Legacy Endowment

More than $16.5 million* invested in donor-directed causes…and counting!

Legacy Endowment Community Foundation, located in the beautiful Bonsall area of California, is a nonprofit organization established in 1994. The Foundation was established to serve donors, awards grants, and provide community leadership for those living in the North County of San Diego. It is with a long-range vision that the Foundation accepts contributions from individuals and organizations, stewards the funds in trusts, and distributes them following the donor’s charitable intent.

The Foundation has seen significant growth in its funds through several decades of thoughtful and prudent investments. As an outcome of astute and incisive planning, gains have been reinvested as generous annual support, thereby helping an array of charitable organizations to sustain, enhance and uplift the quality of life for those living in communities served.
