A message from Kelly – As a founder, one of my goals is to be transparent to our supporters. I personally always wonder where my money goes when I donate. We have no paid staff, everyone is a volunteer and I cherish our hard-working volunteers and donors because we can’t pull events off without you.

This year, your donations provided several students scholarships to South Carolina – South Carolina Leadership School. Additional scholarships were awarded to students attending: West Chester University, Penn State University Altoona, and Penn State University. Your donations also enabled us to provide a grant to Hearts in Hands Community Centers - Youth Lifeguard Program. These students are trained in lifeguard skills and as camp counselors, so they realize their potential and break the cycle of generational poverty. Finally, your donations gave us the honor of awarding grants to students to be able to attend the PennDel Youth Summer Camp. To close out the year, we surprised the kids and The Summit at Trinity AG with some updated items for the kids to enjoy.

We raised about $1,200 from those various events. We have already been able to give 9 scholarships/grants to various students. We partnered up with Hearts in Hands this summer, they offer a camp for kids in the Chester County area who need a positive place to go. Billy’s Legacy Foundation was able to provide a grant for $3,000 to help fund their camp for 60+ kids in the Honeybrook and surrounding areas. This grant allows families to send their child(ren) to camp for a very low cost or for free.
In 2016 we raised about $23,000 at our 10th Annual Golf Outing and Dinner Banquet. We were able to help 12 students all the way from SC, Coatesville, Exton, West Chester, Octorara, and Boston to name a few. We also purchased a basketball hoop for the youth center at Trinity AG. During Thanksgiving, we volunteered our time filling boxes of love (Turkey Meals) at Trinity AG and donated $500 to help provide families in Chester County a meal for the holiday. At Christmas, we provided food, clothing, and small gifts for families in Chester County struggling due to different circumstances. We can’t do any of this without our donors! Thank you for a successful 2016!
We continue to grow and are able to help more youth and families each month. In 2015, we gave 4 more scholarships, donated 50 turkey dinners to local families, and this month we are helping a few families in need during the holiday season. We have partnered with Trinity AG and Sunshine Pals Ministries, who are both like-minded organizations and these partnerships help expand everyone’s efforts to those in need.

We purchased things like diapers, wipes, baby clothes, children’s clothes, books, boots, sheets, pots and pans, and more. Every child also got one of the @KohlsCares stuffed animals for a little extra cuddling! We are happy to report that a qualified couple received a grant from Billy’s Legacy, they headed to Grand Goave, Haiti, from March 17th to 26th, to work alongside Lifeline Christian Missions. They are building houses, working in an orphanage, distributing clothing, shoes, and food, while spreading God’s love. Please keep them in your prayers! We will be sharing more soon as applications and requests continue to come in. Over the past 6 years, through the generosity of people like you, we have raised about $90,000. A portion of this money was donated to help reduce the construction costs and maintain the Summit, Trinity’s Assembly of God’s youth center. Other scholarship funds that have benefited from Billy’s Legacy Foundation include the Brandywine Masters Commission Students, Ministry programs, and the Teen Challenge recovery program. At the 2012 event, we were able to share with you how Billy’s Legacy Foundations funds helped change the life of a young woman, Brooke Fischer. Here is a quote from her “Billy’s Legacy has impacted my life in many ways but one of the most important was how it has enabled me to serve others. In receiving the scholarship for Brandywine MC I was able to remain in the program which in turn allowed me to help other people and serve them in whatever they needed. Billy’s Legacy has by far been a huge blessing in my life”. Each year, our foundation is able to financially support different programs that focus on teenagers and helping them as they face difficult challenges and decisions in their everyday lives. We try to expand each year so we can reach out to and help more programs and ultimately touch more lives of teenagers. In 2012, we asked you to bring a toy for toys for tots and got a great response from Shriners Hospital.
Billy’s Legacy Foundation empowers teens to achieve leadership, personal or educational goals by granting financial scholarships. The foundation was established to provide scholarships and/or grants to students aspiring to be involved with programs supporting continuing education, youth leadership or to students who need dependence recovery grants.
