The legacy we leave for the future residents of Decatur will not emerge from any one organization. It’s a responsibility we share — and rise to meet — collectively.


vidence of our shared commitment is everywhere if we we take the time to look. Many hands, working both individually and in concert, producing good works that inspire and multiply. From Legacy Decatur’s own endeavors, to those of the groups we support, to the many other organizations and individuals who step up daily to improve our community, each tells a story worth sharing.

Meet some of the people, organizations, and projects making Decatur a better place. Not just for today, but as a lasting legacy for tomorrow.
