Our Mission

 

Tough economic times hurt everyone but they especially hurt charities and their ability to raise funds. Corporate and private giving is down or has been postponed until the economy improves. We created this site to help charities through donations of our fine art. It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. We like to think that the right picture, in the form of a donation to a charity, can be worth a thousand dollars.

This web site was created with charities and fund raising in mind. All of the fine art displayed on this web site is available for donation to qualifying charities by Michael Anderson and Lori Anderson. Priority is given to charities operating in the Pacific Northwest for the benefit of children. We have a good record of helping charities and our support will continue in the future.

Donation Requirements

  • Qualifying charities must provide proof of a 501(c)(3) determination by the Internal Revenue Service.
  • Donations of framed fine art are limited to the Portland, Oregon metropolitan area.
  • Charity auction items are subject to a minimum reserve price depending on the size of the piece.
  • We reserve the right to withhold our support to a charity and to modify these terms at any time.
  • Priority is given to charities that provide services and support of children in need.
