Welcome, Strategic Partners!

Thank you for watching our video and believing in the work we do at the Nexstar Legacy Foundation. As a Strategic Partner of Nexstar Network, you understand that the main growth constraint to the plumbing, HVAC and electrical industries is the shortage of a skilled workforce. At the Nexstar Legacy Foundation, we are committed to raising awareness of these industries and showcase that these jobs are some of the best that one can find!

We thank you for your contribution and value your support as we continue to be a voice in changing the narrative of the skilled trades.

The Nexstar Legacy Foundation, a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charity; EIN 20-3547319.

What’s Happening in 2018?

We believe that the more people who hear our message, the better!

Troops to Trades "Golf Tournament in a Box"

A comprehensive kit and “how to” guide, this deliverable will provide a step-by-step outline of how to host a charitable golf tournament, benefitting Troops to Trades. The event can be hosted by any residential service company and addresses three points: raising money for Troops to Trades, supporting the military community at a local level, and creating positive brand awareness for the company.

One Nexstar Network company has hosted a tournament in May and raised a net profit of over $27,000! A second Nexstar Network member is scheduled to a host a tournament in November 2018.

We are thrilled to see our Nexstar members take such an important role with the Foundation!

Career Connections Project

Our Career Connections program will serve as an additional recruiting tool for our Nexstar members as they continue to strengthen their employee talent pool.
