Making a Difference for Charities

- One Piece of Art at a Time -



Fine Art Study Groups

Mr. Anderson became a member of the Photographic Society of America (PSA) last year and during that year he created three Fine Art Study Groups which provide PSA members with the ability to exchange feedback and advice before photography fine art pieces are entered in competition or displayed in a gallery for sale. Mr. Anderson also became the HDR Mentor for PSA members internationally and he enjoys helping other photographers achieve their full potential in photography.





OPPA FP Degree

After several years of work, Mike was presented with his Fellow of Photography Degree (FP) by the Oregon Professional Photographers Association (OPPA) at the OPPA Awards Banquet in December. OPPA is the Oregon affiliate of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) and Mr. Anderson is working towards his Masters Degree from PPA.





Picture of the Year Award

Mr. Anderson's fine art photograph titled, 'High Water' was awarded the Picture of The Year Award for 2014 by the Columbia Council of Camera Clubs in the Large Color Print Category. The 4Cs represents more than 30 camera clubs in 4 states and one province of Canada and it is a council member of the Photographic Society of America (PSA). The High Water piece was created from the merger of multiple images using OnOne Perfect Photo Suite software and Mr. Anderson has started teaching the use of this software in his fine art photography classes.



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.
