Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Legacy Video™?

A Legacy Video™ is a personal and intentional recording where you can capture your story. It’s a precious gift for your family and friends that will last a lifetime. 

Who can record a Legacy Video™?

We believe anyone can and everyone should make a Legacy Video™. Whether or not you are a young family facing the loss of a parent due to terminal illness who is already being served by Inheritance of Hope, you can (and should!) pursue this offering.

If you do not have a diagnosis, you can make a Legacy Video™ to have a snapshot into what your life looks like at the moment — a time capsule to look back on. If you do have a diagnosis, this is a perfect opportunity to gift your loved ones something that captures your voice, stories, mannerisms, and personality!

No matter what your story is, sign up to create a Legacy Video™ today.

How do I make a Legacy Video™?

  • Once you select the date and time that you will record your video, complete the registration form.
  • Your Legacy Video™ coach will reach out to you and provide further encouragement and instructions.
  • During the call, your coach will walk you through the process, recording your stories to turn into an edited final video. You can follow specific question prompts or choose to tell stories without utilizing the coach’s prompts.
  • You will receive the link and password to your private Legacy Video™ to share with loved ones.


When I schedule a time with a coach, is the first contact just a phone call to plan the video, or will I actually be recording my Legacy Video™ during that time?

When you schedule a time with one of our coaches, you will record the actual Legacy Video™ during that time. However, we always plan enough time during that call so the coach can spend the first 15 minutes or so walking you through everything. They will get to hear what you’re wanting to get out of the video, the direction you’d like to take it, etc. as well as offering their expertise if you’d like their insight. You can follow specific question prompts or choose to tell stories the whole time without any prompts from the coach. Once you feel comfortable, the coach will turn off their camera and record the call. 


How much does it cost to create a Legacy Video™?

The costs of Legacy Videos™ are covered by generous donors, so there is no cost for you to participate.


Can I record more than one?

Yes! Feel free to make several, whether you create a video specifically for each person in your family or for specific events (the “Open when you graduate high school” or “Watch this video on your wedding day” idea). Start with scheduling your first call, and your coach can help walk you through next steps.

How can I tell others about Legacy Videos™? Can I refer others?

Of course! You can always share our website on your social media pages or send it directly to people in your life who you think might benefit from creating a video like this. You can also utilize our Refer-A-Friend program! See below for more details.

How does the Refer-A-Friend program work?

We know how difficult it can be to find the time and motivation to pursue something like this. That’s why we created our Refer-A-Friend program where you can help those around you who would benefit from creating a Legacy Video™ by getting the ball rolling! Simply fill out this form and we will take it from there. We will send your friend an email stating that you think they have a beautiful story to share and invite them to schedule a Legacy Video™ that day!
