Why Give to CHI?

Cultural heritage is our history and identity. Without it, we are lost.

The 21st century presents extreme challenges for cultural heritage. Climate change, sea-level rise, negligence and destruction by our fellow travelers on this Earth — all threaten to damage or erase the irreplaceable treasures of our history and self-identity.

It would easy to give up. That would be wrong.

Witnessing these global threats, we at Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI) are driven by the urgency to help protect our human legacy. We hope you are too. All of us stand at a point of inflection in history where we must take action — the time is now.

CHI puts robust, low-cost tools in the hands of cultural caretakers around the world.

CHI stands firmly committed to the goal we set at our founding 14 years ago. By leveraging the powerful properties of digital photography and the computer, CHI provides critical tools and techniques to the professionals and citizen scholars who care for the places and materials that tell the story of our past.

There is still time to make a difference!
