Our History

In 1977 a bequest was left to the Russell Foundation for education to students from Major Pratt School. Over the years more donations increased the funds. In 2005, the Living Legacy Community Foundation was established to enhance the Russell Foundation by increasing the area to encompass the Asessippi Parkland Region. It actively sources new funds to support additional grant making opportunities. The Living Legacy Community Foundation continues to grow. Gifts, donations, and individual endowment funds increases granting possibilities.The foundation is a registered charity, and holds its capital in perpetuity, distributing only the interest income.
