Ways to Help
There are several ways to support the ongoing work of The Witness Tree project. Plus, see below for a list of other organizations you can support that dedicated to fighting climate change and protecting the environment.
Donate: The Witness Tree is a fiscally-sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit organization that serves a national community of artists and arts organizations.
You may make a secure, online tax-deductible donation to The Witness Tree via this link to Fractured Atlas. To inquire about how to donate by check and save processing fees – please send me an email (see the Contact page.) Tax-deductible donations made to The Witness Tree this year will assist me in putting together work for an exhibit at Bottleworks Gallery in Pennsylvania next Fall. I hope to then take that show on the road. Please keep this in mind if you have contacts at any galleries, especially at universities or community centers where there could also be the chance to do related programming to keep the conversation about the climate alive.
Purchase prints: Buying a signed, original Witness Tree print helps support the ongoing work of this project. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from all Witness Tree print sales will be donated to nonprofit environmental or human rights organizations working to fight climate change. When possible, I will make the donation to an organization located in the community where each photograph was taken. Portfolio prints are available in three sizes: 8.5 x 11″, 17 x 22″ and 30 x 40″.

Supporters of The Witness Tree
Funding from The Puffin Foundation LTD and ongoing support from Canson-Infinity Papers have greatly assisted with the production of this project.
I could not be doing this project without the help of my family and numerous colleagues, friends and strangers. Your financial donations, climate stories, scientific information, travel tips, couches, home-cooked meals, and moral support, as well as editing advice, exhibition and presentation opportunities have sustained and inspired me. I would like to extend a special thanks to Tim Donahue for his help with writing the essays for this website.
I have tried to list below all of the individuals and organizations that have supported me in creating this project. Please contact me if your name has inadvertently been left off this ever-growing list.
