Founded in 2005, the Nexstar Legacy Foundation is dedicated to attracting talented individuals to the heating, air conditioning, plumbing and electrical industries, by inspiring these people to discover the prestige, earning power and stability of careers in these fields.
The Nexstar Legacy Foundation provides comprehensive career information for those interested in pursuing the field of PHCE, as well as scholarships and training grants for those beginning their educational journey at trade and technical programs.
The foundation targets its programming and aid to two audiences vital to the growth and quality of PHCE jobs: young adults and veterans. Two programs, powered by the Nexstar Legacy Foundation, were established to meet these needs.
