Our Story

We make a living by what we get.
We make a life by what we give.
 –Winston Churchill

The Hoss Legacy is founded by Colleen Hoss to honor her husband Ronald on the occasion of his 80th birthday, as well as to commemorate Colleen’s beloved Aunt Bonnie, who also died in 2012.

Entitled “Milestones and Memories,” the website provided by the Hoss Legacy serves as the nexus for enduring support of various non-profits in the Southwest Washington region.  With the combined efforts of family and many friends, Colleen’s vision is to encourage individuals, families and businesses to celebrate personal milestones and remember loved ones by donating to charities focused on providing direct services to children, youth and their families.

The Hoss Legacy aims to raise $70,000 in order to give an equal share to organizations in Clark County, Washington in the spring of  2013.
