Giving Back

With your help, we can make a difference.

Giving back is something that is important, and by combining this core value with my business, we can all help make the world a little bit better.

We are very happy to announce that with the launch of our new website in 2020, Carland Cartography automatically donates 5% of every sale to charities that are important to us.

Cedar Valley Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity Greater Boston, believes everyone deserves a safe, affordable place to live. So do we.

This cause is important to us because we have roots in the Boston area, it is where Carland Cartography started. We love this community and are so grateful for all the support we have received while building our business there. Now, we want to help build for those who need it the most - Habitat volunteers work alongside partner families to build strength, stability and self-reliance through home-ownership.

Artists For Humanity (AFH) is a Boston-based social change organization that provides under-resourced teens the keys to self-sufficiency through paid employment in art and design.

Like AFH, Carland Cartography is built on the philosophy that engagement in the creative process is a powerful force. By bridging economic, racial, and social divisions, we can help integrate arts entrepreneurship into the fabric of the business community and empower young creative people to succeed.


GoLocalProv | NEW: ACLU Supports Occupy Providence

The American Civil Liberties Union, or ACLU, continues to fight government abuse and to vigorously defend individual freedoms, including: speech and religion, a woman’s right to choose, the right to due process, citizens’ rights to privacy and much more.

Carland Cartography stands with the ACLU's critical work to protect voting rights, help vulnerable people in prisons, jails and immigration detention centers, and fight to ensure reproductive health care remains open and accessible to all who need it.


The Center for Creative Land Recycling is the leading national nonprofit dedicated to transforming communities by converting abandoned or vacant commercial and industrial properties. By educating and convening communities, government agencies, and the private sector, they work to create optimal conditions for reinvestment.

By restoring empty or abandoned properties, we can build new developments to benefit the community, create jobs, and improve living conditions for the area's residents. As someone who grew up near brownfields and underutilized space, this hits home for me on many levels.


Carnegie Museums of Pittsburgh is a family of four diverse, dynamic museums: Carnegie Museum of Art, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, Carnegie Science Center, and The Andy Warhol Museum. Each year Carnegie Museums serves more than 1.47 million people, including nearly 400,000 schoolchildren. I was one of those children.

This is an important organization to me personally because as a child in Pittsburgh, my father took me to this museum, which served as a gateway for my love of art, nature, and archaeology. Without this exposure, I would not be the person I am today.


My Block, My Hood, My City is a community organization in Chicago that provides underprivileged youth with awareness of the world and opportunities beyond their neighborhood.

After living for several years in the Chicago area, this organization appeals to me because they are working to help elevate the young people of the next generation. Carland Cartography stands with their mission to give opportunities to young people who are looking to better themselves and create better future for all of us, together.


The Tory Burch Foundation is a foundation started by the fashion designer (known for her handbags and shoes) to support the empowerment of women entrepreneurs through education and collaboration, mentorship programs, and financial assistance.

Like some other women business owners, it was hard for me to start my business. It takes a financial, mental, and physical toll and it is a tremendous amount of work. However, it has also brought me joy, taught me discipline, generated income, and forged friendships that wouldn't have been possible otherwise. I support this foundation because they help other women pursue their passions and achieve their goals.

We also provide an annual donation to the organization Crafting The Future, which is a collective of artists concerned about the lack of racial and ethnic diversity in the fields of craft, art, and design.

This organization supports the careers of young, underrepresented artists by connecting them to opportunities in Louisiana (YAYA), Kentucky (STEAM Exchange), North Carolina (Penland School of Craft), and Maine (Haystack Mountain School of Crafts) that will help them thrive.
