Jean Elliott: Why I Support CHI

Jean Elliott: Why I Support CHI

Because of my background in high-tech marketing, people wonder how I came to support Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI) and why I serve on its Board. It comes down to three things: the team, the mission, and the impact.

I began working with CHI co-founder Carla Schroer in 1996 in Silicon Valley, where I observed her passion, intelligence, integrity, and dedication. It was exciting in 2002 to see her and her co-founder Mark Mudge channel those qualities into founding CHI.

Together they set out on a mission: to deliver innovative digital imaging tools and practices that preserve the context of important cultural sites and objects around the world. Many of these are imperiled by man-made and natural circumstances. CHI’s imaging technologies are designed to preserve these treasures in their cultural context for generations to come.

CHI has earned the right to work with some of the finest museums and scholars in the world, and it does. But CHI's impact is even greater because of its commitment to “democratizing” its approach. It makes the technologies and methods accessible to even the smallest museums and private collections around the world.

Like me, you may see supporting CHI as a form of stewardship in preserving our cultural legacy. When you give to CHI, you are enabling thousands of people to play a direct role in the stewardship of cultural heritage.

Please join me in helping CHI to continue its important work!
