We Bring Your Legacy to Life

Return on Good loves telling a good story. Your story. Whether you’re a corporation or an individual doing good in the world, we want to capture your story in a documentary-style video for the world to see (or just your company or family—you decide!).  

Why share it? Because you want to be in charge of your giving story. Because others deserve to hear your story. Because your story will inspire your family, your employees, your community and the world at large for generations to come.  

Stories also help us explain everything in our experience. From science to relationships, feelings to memories, and questions to expectations. With every story we take in, our minds make cognitive and emotional connections that shape our perceptions, perspectives and worldview.  

At Return on Good, we believe philanthropic stories are worth telling. From donor stories to corporate giving stories, we look forward to creating your impactful and inspiring legacy video. 

Why Invest in Your Story?

By investing in a legacy video, you: 

  • Stay in the driver’s seat of your giving narrative 
  • Provide the “why” behind your giving 
  • Allow nonprofits to see if they’re a match for your mission 
  • Influence and inspire others to give generously 
  • Create an inspiring, timeless keepsake for generations to come 
  • Demonstrate to the world your company’s commitment to giving back and doing good in the world 

What You Can Expect

  • Concise, powerful narratives that are 10 to 15 minutes long 
  • Include the people and places that are most important to telling your story 
  • Created by a team of award-winning videographers, journalists and designers

30+ Years of Building Brands

For more than 30 years, the Return on Good team has been building and bringing brands to life.  

Branding expertise starts at the top with our founders, innovative entrepreneurs who took a digital marketing agency from a startup to being named to Inc. 500 and 5000 four years in a row.  

Within seven years, this seed of an idea grew into a thriving business that was sold to private equity investors.  

For decades before that milestone, they worked in marketing and advertising, including at the New York Times and for top creative agencies where they developed their brand knowledge and expertise.  

With a passion for doing even more good in the world, these business leaders founded Return on Good. The company is focused on helping philanthropists (from individuals to corporations) Give Smarter.  

But branding expertise is still alive and well within Return on Good’s founders and our storytelling/creative team. 

A team works together

We Bring Your Brand to Life

Our creative team was handpicked by our founders, specifically selected for their 30+ years of experience in brand strategy, creative development, videography and content strategy.  

Like our founders, these seasoned brand strategists, journalists, videographers and designers are creative, strategic, passionate and compassionate.  

You’ll be delighted to work with the Return on Good creative team and wowed by the end result:

  • A brand that captures your organization’s spirit and story 
  • A brand that you can be proud of building
