Lisa's Legacy encourages people to bring compassionate conversation and hope to those who are hurting by sharing bags with items of comfort and support.

Lisa's Legacy provides tools and educational resources to individuals seeking to help and support people dealing with a difficult circumstance.  The primary tool is a bag containing items of comfort and practicality provided at no costs, which serves as a catalyst to promote compassionate, sensitive conversation between the person giving the bag and the recipient.
Our four-fold vision is to:
  • increase the overall awareness of Lisa's Legacy so that more compassionate people can connect with those in need
  • partner with compassion-based organizations in Fort Wayne and surrounding counties to form a regional distribution network for the bags
  • offer the bags and educational resources online to anyone desiring assistance to initiate a compassionate conversation
  • be self-sustaining through donations, sponsorships and grants


Lisa's Legacy, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is committed to be excellent stewards of the time, talents and gifts afforded to us.  Therefore, we have no paid staff and a volunteer Board of Directors that donate their time and expertise because they fervently believe in the mission of Lisa's Legacy. 
Our 2022 Board of Directors consists of:
  • Ann and Steve Filler - Chairpersons
  • Joe Bir
  • Cyndi Boyer
  • Allen Haynes
  • Shanita Nelson
  • Judy Reifenberg
  • Jenny Sanders
  • Terri Stumpf
  • Gil Tallman
