The Legacy Fund was established by the JACL National Council at the 1990 National Convention held in San Diego. Many of the donations to the fund were from JACL members who gave portions of their redress awards to further the legacy of JACL. A portion of the earnings from the Legacy Fund Endowment continues to annually provide funds to run the grants program.
