The heart of The Legacy Foundation, Inc. began when our Founder, LaCrystal Davis was a Junior in high school. After observing a young lady make detrimental decisions, it inspired LaCrystal to want to help teenage girls in making decisions that would produce a healthy lifestyle. In 2018, LaCrystal took a business course called Marketplace Ministry, and after completing the program, the groundwork of The Legacy Foundation, Inc. began in 2019. During the 2019-2020 school year, Hannah, Tashyiana, and Olivia became a part of a pilot group for The Star Program, which is designed for high school Seniors. As a result of being in The Star Program, the young ladies achieved their collegiate goals, and will transition to our Gold Program (our program for College students). Coming up with a name for The Legacy Foundation was tedious. LaCrystal wanted something that reflected the purpose of the nonprofit, as well as her heart. She prayed about the name, and one day out of of the blue, God dropped "Legacy" in her heart. "Legacy" means an inheritance passed down or received from an ancestor; special privilege given to one, due to their family relationship. LaCrystal's family Legacy is important to her. Her Great-Great-Great Grandparents Paul and Ellen Davis, and Great-Great Grandparents Jacob (Paul and Ellen's son) and Bessie Washington-Davis were enslaved in Eutawville, SC, and after slavery bought hundreds of acres of land to give to their children, in which their descendants still live on today.
