Save Our Legacy is a mission-driven, media company.

Save Our Legacy is a mission-driven, media company that allows Campaigners who comply with Save Our Legacy’s policies to submit real, inspiring stories of overcoming various life challenges to be crowdfunded and produced into professional videos. Save Our Legacy allows individuals and organizations nationwide to raise funds and produce inspiring video testimonials, mini documentaries and ads. These inspiring videos will not only highlight remarkable stories, books or services but also help people overcome challenges of their own.

Save Our Legacy Campaign Process:

  1. We review the Campaigner’s story to make sure it’s inspiring and a good fit for a funding campaign on our site.
  2. Our professional writers and editors help Campaigners craft the way their story (or a story of another person) is told to enhance the potential for the campaign to be funded.
  3. Once the Campaigner’s story is approved, we make their campaign page live and we make it easy for them to share their campaign page with family, friends, supporters and the rest of the world to help fund the production of their inspiring video.
  4. Once the campaign has become fully funded, and we have entered the video production process, a Save Our Legacy producer will assist the Campaigner in writing their script for the video.
  5. Video production turnaround time is about 12 business days. After the first cut of the video has been edited, the Campaigner will be allowed to review the video to suggest additional edits based on pre-existing footage from their original shoot.
  6. After the Campaigner’s video has been produced, any remaining balance of the project funds will be sent to the Campaigner via their PayPal associated email. Each Campaigner is required to have a PayPal account established to receive the remaining funds from their campaign. The PayPal associate email will be verified during the production process. Save Our Legacy is not responsible for any funds that have been sent to an email account that the Campaigner no longer uses with PayPal. It is the Campaigner’s responsibility to provide Save Our Legacy with an accurate email associated with PayPal in order to receive their remaining campaign funds.
