Part of what makes us unique is that Legacy Funerals is owned by Legacy Trust, a registered charitable trust committed to giving back. This means that profits from our services go right back into the community.
With your help, we have gifted over $3.5 million to charities, schools, local organisations and many other incredible causes, truly enabling your loved ones to create a lasting legacy.
Submissions for this year’s funding grant opportunities are now closed and we are no longer accepting any further proposals at this time. If you have any questions or require further information, please feel free to reach out to us.
While Greg no longer receives a salary or benefit from the funeral business which he formerly owned, his family trust continues to own the Woodhill and Tauranga Park funeral home premises. In this way he receives rental income.
