Help the Society and the BIGDoer Society operates as a non-profit.

Here’s how we finance things (no particular order)…

  • The sale of photos and articles
  • Commissioned articles
  • Ad revenue from shared articles
  • Government and private grants
  • Society memberships
  • Gifts from our readers
  • Paid research projects
  • Paid writing projects
  • History detective gigs
  • Photo and writing workshops
  • Speaking engagements
  • Historic consulting

Income, every last bit, funds the day to day operation of the society and website with most going into the underwriting of future projects. Team BIGDoer, so Chris & Connie, your hosts, do not take a wage, not a single cent.


Like what we do? Here’s how you can help our little group…

Put us to work doing any of the jobs listed in the list above. Pay on a sliding scale – we’ll make it work. Gratis work for museums, historical groups, benevolent organizations and the like – however help with gas, lodging, meals and out of pocket expenses is appreciated.

Buy a photo! Near any one from this site, your choice, adjusted, optimized and in a larger size, delivered to your inbox that you can then print out or use electronically. Please indicate which photo when paying (describe it, give the file name or the caption below it). Delivery will generally be next working day. A few photos don’t qualify but we’ll let you know if that’s the case and will issue a full refund. Sizes are in pixels. For commercial use or business use, please contact us. We’re here to answer any of your questions.
