It’s through generous sponsorship that GOING RURAL has gotten this far! 

This year donations are tax deductible!

Cultural Odyssey, an award-winning cultural arts organization committed to social justice and community transformation has taken GOING RURAL: Looking For America under their wing. Please note: Like many nonprofits, 10% of your donation goes to administration costs. If you’d like to donate through Cultural Odyssey, let me know and we will arrange that easily.

GOING RURAL operates on a teeny, tiny shoestring budget. This year I am committed to living on the income of the average rural person to personally experience the challenges they face. 


~ MEDIA/TECHNOLOGY TEAM: I have the most awesome and giving tiny band of wizards who help me bring the stories to you, typo free and keep my site working. BTW, I do 95% of the design to keep costs down.

~ROAD TRAVEL: Expenses are minimal, but they add up. I live simply, traveling in my van, and when gifted, under the roof of folks who donate lodging. Your support goes toward gas, food, and those times when lodging isn’t provided.  

~ PRESENTATION MATERIALS: Support for supplies is so helpful!
