Donate to Permanent

We believe that everyone has a legacy that deserves to be preserved.

Thank you for considering a donation to the Permanent Legacy Foundation.

Not all people have an equitable opportunity to be remembered for who they are and we want to change that. Our Foundation already provides free access to industry-leading digital preservation software to anyone with an email address and internet access via But that is not enough to preserve the digital legacy of all people. With the generous support of people like you, we do more. 

We work to invite, include, and support people and communities on who have been underrepresented in the existing historical narrative and are still at risk of being underrepresented in the future. We design our newsletters, podcasts, posts, calls and programs to uplift work being done to preserve those stories. And we invite participation in our Byte4Byte program to charitable organizations that preserve those stories through community outreach and archiving. 

Scroll down below to explore public archives that were created by Byte4Byte partner organizations.

We invite you to donate whatever feels right to you today. No matter the size of your gift, it will go directly to the people, programs and storage grants doing the work to include all people in our shared history.

Where your donation goes

People and programs: staff who produce educational podcasts, videos, and resources, as well as host community calls and webinars.
Storage grants: free Permanent storage offered to eligible charitable organizations via the Byte4Byte program.
Internships: we recruit students and early career professionals from information and computer science programs.

These Byte4Byte archives are supported by generous donors like you.
