Our MissionTo preserve and provide perpetual access to the digital legacy of all people for the historical and educational benefit of future generations.
The Permanent Legacy Foundation is not your typical tech company. We are a mission-driven, 501(c)(3) nonprofit, cultural heritage organization, just like a library, museum, university, or faith-based organization.
Any money left over after paying salaries and utility bills is reinvested into the preservation of the digital materials entrusted to us. We actually pool all our one-time storage fees into a shared endowment and use the interest on this tax-exempt investment fund to pay our ongoing operations and storage costs, in perpetuity.
Charitable donors are valuable partners. Philanthropy allows our team to do what we otherwise could not: research new technology, innovate on user experience, recruit new talent, and expand access to the broadest possible community through our Byte for Byte Program. Charitable gifts can take many forms, such as cash, stocks, property, bequests, and valuable volunteer time.
