Rugby has a longstanding tradition of giving back to the community. The Legion Community Foundation was founded in 2020 as a 501c3 organization and strives to give back to our communities by inspiring our youth and promoting the importance of education, health and respect through the power of the sport of rugby.
While the Foundation is new to San Diego, it is already making an impact through programs ranging from charitable donations, recreational and educational programs, and the involvement of players and coaches through our outreach initiatives.
The Legion Community Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization that supports our community through a variety of philanthropic activities, including promotion of youth rugby and providing other services for underserved populations. We share the value and importance of education, health, and respect through philanthropic programs, social events and the San Diego Legion Academy. Our programs are specifically designed to grow the sport of rugby, give everyone an equal opportunity to play, and shape youth on and off the field.
The Foundation drives its community work around three principles: Unity, Passion, Character.
UNITY - Developing skills, driving participation, and building relationships for all youth, including those in underserved populations, in a positive learning environment.
PASSION - Supporting an inclusive, passionate rugby community.
CHARACTER - Providing youth athletes with resources and opportunities to learn the sport and reach their full potential.
