Tom has been very successful in helping individuals and organizations raise funds with his artwork. He has raised funds for organizations, police stations, fire companies, schools, and others.
Tom's first fundraiser was done for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Lancaster County. In 1988, Tom painted a watercolor entitled, "Penn Square at Christmas". Over 11,000 cards were sold. The limited editions were sold out immediately. The 495 numbered/signed prints sold for $60.00 each and the 50 Artist Proof prints sold for $90.00 each. Ten of the artist proof prints were remarqued and sold for $120.00 each. A remarque is a small drawing or painting added to the print, by the artist, and is a value added option for serious collectors. On the secondary market the prints currently sell for approximately $2,500; the #1 Artist Proof with a remarque recently sold for $5,000. (View Credits)
In 1988, Tom did a print of the Haldeman Mansion for the Haldeman Mansion Preservation Society located in Bainbridge, PA. More than 300 people and businesses contributed and a total of $27,000 was raised. The largest single contribution of $16,325 came from Ogden-Martin, Inc., which now owns Tom's Artist Proof #1 print. An equal amount of $27,000 was matched with a grant by the Lancaster County Foundation. A total of $54,000 was contributed to the Haldeman Mansion Society to help restore the Conoy Township mansion of Samuel Stehman Haldeman, one of the nation's foremost 19th Century naturalists.

Most often, Tom's artwork is reproduced into prints and a fundraising program begins. However, Tom can also take your idea, develop it into a drawing or painting, and have it reproduced onto a piece of giftware.
