Impact statement

Project Details

What We Need
  • A photographer who will work with the Organization over 1-2 days to capture an important event or shoot a series of photographs to tell the Organization's story
  • A set of professionally edited, high-resolution images delivered in JPEG or TIFF format suitable for web or print use
  • Note: The photographer needs to be available in the same geographical location as the Organization or be willing to travel at own expense
Additional Details

Our event takes place over two days, Friday May 5th from 6:30-9 pm and Saturday May 6 form 10 am- 5 pm. It would be nice to have someone that could attend both days or parts of both days.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a beautiful and photogenic historic property, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have enthusiastic and friendly staff, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

The success of our organization depends on showing donors how successful an event can be. Without your help, we cannot produce the high quality images from the event that we need. Your skills will empower us to receive more donors for the event in upcoming years.

About The Org

Our Mission

To preserve the National Historic Landmark known as Morven by operating it as a museum and public garden that educates diverse audiences and showcases its rich history and the cultural heritage of New Jersey.

What We Do

In a historic house built by a signer of the Declaration of Independence and later the home of Robert Wood Johnson and subsequently serving as the Governor's Mansion for five governors, Morven celebrates in its galleries both the remarkable history of the site in a permanent exhibition as well as the cultural heritage of all of New Jersey through changing exhibitions and programs.


Cyndi did an amazing job! She took the time to come out for multiple days of the event and was kind, enjoyable to be around, and took AMAZING photographs! She had a quick turn around on the photos and the quality was great. Working with Cyndi was a great experience and we hope to be able to use her again for future events!
