Giving Back

Making Contributions Where they Count

Giving BackI’m trying to make a difference by giving back to the amazing organizations, associations, trusts and conservancies that support the National Parks. I feel that it’s important to protect America’s special places, and to connect people with nature. And it’s up to all of us to pitch in. Perhaps more importantly, we need to inspire the next generation of park stewards.

The mission of the National Park Service is to preserve the natural and cultural resources and values of the national park system for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations. And my hope is that, in some small way, I can contribute to that mission.

My goal is that by creating these iconic images, I can help to generate awareness — not only of the grandeur of these amazing places — but also for the need of continued protection and operation of the parks. I think that everyone — now and in the future — should have a chance to enjoy the often-fascinating and always awe-inspiring majesty of our National Parks.

Giving Back to the Organizations I Support

When you purchase one of my creations, you also help the organizations, trusts, conservancies and associations that support our National Parks. I donate 10% of annual profits as well as posters, postcards and canvas prints to these organizations who use them to raise funds for their ongoing work.


I’m giving back, and in 2016, I made financial contributions to each of these organizations:

The National Park Foundation
$1000

Friends of Great Smoky Mountains National Park
$250

The Yosemite Conservancy
$250

Yellowstone Forever
$250

The Glacier Conservancy
$250

The Western National Parks Association
$250

Eastern National
$250

Washington’s National Park Fund
$250

Friends of Acadia
$250

In addition, I donated posters and postcards to the organizations listed below. They used the artwork at their silent auctions and other fundraising efforts. In most cases, these items garnered more than their retail value and contributed directly to their financial goals.

Yellowstone Forever

The Glacier Conservancy

Washington’s National Park Fund

I also donated posters to the organizations listed below who asked for my help in their fundraising efforts. In 2016, these events were centered around the 100th Anniversary of the National Park Service.

New Jersey Conservation Foundation

Martin Luther School (New York)

Nederland Elementary School (Colorado)

In all, this amounted to more than $5,000.00 in contributions. And, the majority of which went directly to these organizations to fund education programs, trail restoration, capital improvements, and much, much more!
