e-Legacy Retreats

Resources & Relationships. All for young families facing the loss of a parent.
eLegacy Retreats bring the content and community you need right to you! We connect families from across the country, families who actually understand the challenges of life-threatening illness: cancer, ALS, and more. We provide resources for each member of your family, a team overflowing with love, and hope -- all to help you thrive despite the uncertainty you face.

You get time as a family as well as sessions designed for each member of your family -- diagnosed parent, caregiver, and children of all ages. Licensed counselors and Legacy Video recording are also available during your eRetreat, all at no cost to you.

Our Guarantee: You will feel loved as part of the Inheritance of Hope Family! If you do not feel cared for, we'll gift you a subscription to RightNow Media @ Work. Learn more, or apply now!

We encourage applying early. Applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

What's Next:

This year marks the fifth annual Holley Day hosted by Kendra Scott. Holley Day is a fundraiser highlighting promotions that benefit Inheritance of Hope. Kendra’s dear friend Holley Kitchen was a recipient of an IoH Legacy Retreat, and with her husband and small sons attended the life-changing, memory-making, legacy-forming experience just months before she passed away.  
After losing Holley to metastatic breast cancer, Kendra made a personal commitment to honor her friend’s legacy by impacting more families like Holley's. As part of that promise, Kendra Scott has sponsored three Inheritance of Hope Legacy Retreats, with additional plans to continue the partnership.
Holley Day is October 13.
What do families do? They laugh together. They cry together. They celebrate together. They make memories together. And... they get together - they have family reunions!
On November 13-15, we invite everyone in the full IoH Family -- families served, volunteers, donors, partners, everyone! -- to make more family memories, reconnect with other families and amazing IoH volunteers, and enjoy new resources and relationships.
Registration is open! We look forward to kicking off the Thanksgiving season by gathering as IoH Family, all across the country!

Black Friday. Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday - a global day of giving!
1 in 20 children will suffer the loss of a parent before age 16. Inheritance of Hope uniquely serves these children and their families with life-changing resources and relationships. #GivingTuesday helps make hope possible for many more families.
#GivingTuesday this year is December 1.
We are looking forward to Inheritance of Hope's next eLegacy Retreat on February 19-21, 2021, for young families facing the loss of a parent. Families from around the country will receive gifts in the mail, meet online, gain resources and relationships to navigate the challenges they face, make priceless Legacy Videos - and have fun together!

From a previous eLegacy Retreat participant: "I just want to thank them from my heart. It's the best and most helpful organization I have come across."

To help us plan the best experience for your family, we encourage applying early. Applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Application deadline is January 22.
