Legacy Projects

What is a Legacy Project?

Legacy Projects are projects in the community that represent the culmination of learning and engagement by GenYYC participants over the course of the year and are tangible action projects that demonstrate GenYYC’s commitment to supporting a positive community where we all live, work and play.


Each year, Calgary Foundation allocates $50,000 to GenYYC Legacy Projects to fund unique and innovative projects that align with the mandate and purpose of the GenYYC program. Legacy projects can manifest in a number of different formats including:


  • Physical infrastructure pieces or spaces (Community garden, art installation etc.)
  • Renovating or refurbishing a community space
  • Pilot projects to develop new collaborative programs that address a service gap or augment existing services in community
