Legacy League membership is open to anyone who shares the vision of the organization. While many members are Samford University parents, alumni and employees, numerous others have no previous affiliation with the university. Members are encouraged to invite their friends to participate in our mission to raise life-changing scholarships for students with significant financial need and challenging circumstances.
Meetings, generally held on the second Thursday of October, November, March and April, feature educational and inspirational programs. Accomplished speakers, artists, musicians and authors are among the guests who share their talents, knowledge and experiences with the Legacy League. Attendance at meetings is not requirement for membership.

The Legacy League encourages members to contribute to the organization’s mission through service. Volunteer opportunities, which suit a variety of talent, interests and schedules, allow members to become part of an encouraging and committed community. Student care, special events and program plans are a few of the meaningful and enjoyable involvement opportunities available.
The Legacy League offers special events and service opportunities tailored to the interests and availability of members under age 40. Past special events include breakfast with a local entrepreneur, Legacy League night at Samford Baseball, Sweets and Strokes, and a program on boundaries led by a trained and licensed counselor. Junior members also participate in traditional Legacy League events, including the Christmas Home Tour, as their schedules allow.
Junior member programs are planned and executed by the junior board, one of the Legacy League’s primary leadership groups. Junior board members are committed to honor the Lord, provide transformational experiences for our students with significant need and challenging circumstances, and promote a caring community for our members and guests. To be eligible for membership on the junior board, a candidate should be an enthusiastic ambassador for the Legacy League’s mission; previous Samford affiliation is not required. The Legacy League is not exclusively a women’s organization.
