Our partnerships with individuals and groups may vary in form and dimension but they always embrace one or all of the definitions above. In some cases we share the cost of printing images with our partner, or sometimes we can trade our services for PR exposure. Flexibility is the operative word in each partnership. We’ll do whatever it takes to make the partnership a win-win proposition for all concerned.
If you are interested in Partnering with Art for Conservation (AFC) on a project, click here for a Printing Partnership Form. Once you submit your idea to us, it will promptly go to a review committee and you will be contacted soon after.
Please, take some time and browse our galleries, read about these programs and other important conservation efforts that Art for conservation is proud to be a part of. If you have a grassroots conservation cause you need help with, please contact us.
We DO care what happens to our planet. And because you are here, we know that YOU care, too. Together, we can make a difference.
