How do you want to be remembered?


Why invest in a legacy project?

  • For surviving friends and family. The people that love you will be greatly comforted by having something they can see and touch, and which will keep the unique memories of you close to their hearts.

  • For future generations. When those who remember us are replaced by those we'll never meet, legacy projects show descedants who you were and what you stood for -- helping them understand the roots of their own lives.

  • For yourself. Knowing that the meaning of your life and the richness of your memory will live on brings great serenity.

How can I preserve the story of my life?

  • Family heirloom projects like scrapbooks, memorial quilts, repurposed jewelry, or a published collection of family recipes.

  • Common good memorial initiatives like scholarships, publicly placed plaques, and charitable donations.

  • Digitization and online album creation, from photos to letters to video recordings.

  • New legacy items, like audio recordings of your life story, ornaments, personal websites, or a plaster cast of your hands.

How does it work?

      Step 1

In a free consultation, we meet with you to hear about your journey and discuss the many types of legacy projects that could suit your needs and budget. We'll then propose a timeline and estimated cost.

       Step 2

We get to work! We'll partner with you and your family to make your legacy project a reality, whether it's conducting personal interviews and organizing ephemera or vetting and contracting specialty service providers.

       Step 3

We help you distribute your legacy project or arrange for its safekeeping until you're ready to share it.
