Development and maintenance of a new platform for a modern historic inventory isn't cost-free; please donate to help defray the costs if you can. As I am not a 501(c)3, Preservation North Carolina has agreed to help development of the site by acting as a non-profit sponsor for donations over $100. I.e., if you donate more than $100, you can claim it as a charitable donation. Not everyone can afford that, and I'm grateful for any help I can get, so I've set up a separate PayPal account to allow non-tax deductible donations to the project. I hope that funding is sufficient to continue to improve the site and add resources that can't be added through sweat equity / pleading alone (the source of the ~10,000 images on the site to date.) Many, many thanks for your support.

Under $100 donations, click on the button below. They aren’t tax deductible, but they’re cheaper! Any amount welcome!
If you can't afford any monetary donation, but want to help, please email me about opportunities to volunteer - there is a lot of work to be done to enter and correct data, upload new buildings, etc. that require no special skill. If you have coding experience, website, or database experience and want to donate your time and expertise to help add features to the site, your contributions would be welcome.
