Dear Friends and Potential Donors:

For much of my work life, I have helped grassroots organizations raise money, either through event production or direct fundraising, soliciting the help of individuals and foundations.  Most recently, I was board President of a non-profit that helps slavery victims.

We are 6 years into the Activist Video Archive and we need to work even faster and more comprehensively for the very simple reason that our history is being stripped away every time an activist passes on, becomes more vulnerable or simply loses the capacity to remember his/her life and times.
If you believe as we do, that history illuminates and informs the way to the future, please help us preserve our progressive political history by making a tax-deductible donation to the Activist Video Archive! 

We will use it wisely and well.  Feel  free to contact any of our Advisory Committee if you don't know us personally and they will attest to how scrupulously we are using our resources.

You can make a tax deductible donation to our project by writing a check to the Liberty Hill Foundation and sending it to us at 6420 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 700 Los Angeles, CA. 90048. Please earmark it for the Activist Video Archive.

You can also make a tax deductible donation by going directly to and follow the prompts on the donation page

We have just initiated an Sustainer Campaign where donors make a three year commitment to the Archive Project, pledging to donate either $500 or $1000 a year for three years. This will be a great help to us so we can sustain and secure our work flow. Thanks for your help of any amount, however small. It is greatly appreciated and will be used wisely.
