What We Do

What We Do

Preservation for every person is now within reach but it requires a fundamentally new kind of organization.

We are applying the tried-and-true, institutional models of cultural heritage preservation and leveraging the accessibility and scale of digital cloud storage to provide a truly one of a kind, innovative, public service.

The Permanent Legacy Foundation is building the world’s first consumer-grade, secure cloud storage service backed by a nonprofit. We’re making digital archives available for individuals, organizations and families.

If we make it possible to preserve the legacy of every individual and make that legacy accessible to future generations, then we can create a resource to transform the idea of human history as we know it.

This is our mission – to preserve and provide perpetual access to the digital legacy of all people for the historical and educational benefit of future generations.
