Here you can find answers to common questions.  ForMotherNature is a different concept, so we expect a few questions.

If you don't see the information you need, please contact Cathy to ask anything.

 

What is this website for?

It's for people who realize they are the ones who will change the world.  ForMotherNature profiles artists who are donating money from their sales to help save wildlife and wild places.  Participating artists donate part of their sales proceeds to their favorite environmental nonprofit.  Environmental nonprofits work in a hundred different ways to protect and preserve nature.  ForMotherNature makes it easy for everyone to find these artists, purchase their art, and support environmental nonprofits.  

 

Can I buy or sell artwork and crafts here?

Artists show and sell their work on websites separate from ForMotherNature.  Simply click on the links provided to visit artist websites, see all their work, and purchase from them. 

 

Can artists choose the nonprofit they donate to?

Yes, it just needs to have an environmental focus and be recognized by the IRS as a nonprofit.  There are hundreds in the US to choose from.

 

How much must an artist donate to their chosen nonprofit?

Artists choose how much to pledge, anywhere between 1-100% of their sales proceeds (not including tax or shipping).  The donation percentage is listed on each artist profile.  Artists must donate a minimum of $50 annually even if their sales for the year are zero.

 

Do artists pay to participate on ForMotherNature?

No.  There is no charge for participating.  The website and its maintenance are provided by the founder, Cathy L. Berman, in an effort to raise awareness and funds for nature.  Artists are only responsible for their donations to their chosen environmental organization.
