Here are some of the ways we can help you support your funeral homes, your readers, and your reporters.
Who died today? How many people have we lost? How can I remember and honor them safely? These are just a few of the profound questions Americans now find themselves asking each morning as we turn to the daily news.
To help our local news partners answer these questions, Legacy offers a wide variety of expert resources.
For Funeral Homes
Video hosting, marketing resources, and more
The NFDA is calling funeral directors the #lastresponders for a reason: Funeral homes are providing mission-critical services during the epidemic, and they need all the support they can get. We can help you partner with your local funeral service providers to guide your community through COVID-19’s end-of-life impact.
For Your Readers

Mortality data and end-of-life expertise for epidemic coverage
Our obituary database represents the largest body of 21st-century death notices in the United States. This allows us to offer unique national and local insights into mortality trends and other end-of-life issues.
We’ve made this data, interviews with our experts, and our content library available to the media, with examples of ways we can help at the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and CTV News . We invite any journalist to contact [email protected] to learn more or make a request.
