The Full Story
The Trice Legacy Foundation was created from a tragic event to promote and do good. Jack Trice’s life was ended before he could cement his legacy. He wanted to help educate his race and community by creating a culture around family and doing better each day. Iowa State is where the legacy was started but his goal was to teach further than just the Iowa borders. His accomplishment on the field is why we know his name, but the foundation recognizes him for more than just football.
We provide tools and support to students with a need and a desire to create their own LEGACY by continuing education after High School
We strive to help as many students of color get what they need to succeed in secondary education and be with them each step of their way to completion of the journey through programs and funding.
