All donations of any amount to the Grand Canyon Panorama Project are greatly appreciated, but check out our special thank you rewards of shout outs, posters, framed posters, sponsorship opportunities, and guided tours at the $20, $50, $100, $500, and $1000 levels.
Donate $500 to the Grand Canyon Panorama Project and in addition to the poster gift offered at the $100 level, we will help you get your poster framed. Everyone’s taste in frames is different, and we will give you a gift card worth $100 to design exactly the frame you want on pictureframes.com. The gift card will cover most if not all the cost of a frame for the large 14″ x 36″ print of your choice.
And in addition to the print and framing, you will have the opportunity to sponsor a project panorama, selecting from any of the panoramas not yet sponsored. You provide us with a logo and/or a brief bit of text, and the logo and text will permanently appear prominently on the panorama’s gateway page, and will also appear briefly each time the panorama is first displayed to a viewer within the project proper. Both the logo and the text can be hyperlinks to the web page of your choice. Let the world know of your generous support of the Grand Canyon Panorama Project! After we receive you donation, we will send you an email with information on how to select the panorama you wish to sponsor, provide the logo, text, and hyperlink url, and how to select and receive your framed gift poster.

Donate $1000 or more to the Grand Canyon Panorama Project, and Larry Wieland will thank you personally with a day-long guided tour at the Grand Canyon. Larry will meet you, and if you choose a small group of your family and friends, early in the day at the South Rim and you’ll do what fits your inclinations, abilities, and the weather of the day. If you and all your group are fit hikers, you could do a day long day hike down one of the trails from the South Rim, perhaps down the South Kaibab Trail to Ooh Aah Point, Cedar Ridge, and maybe even as far as Skeleton Point. Or maybe down the Hermit Trail and over to Dripping Spring, passing the dramatic views along the traverse just above the Supai cliffs on the Dripping Spring Trail, or any other day hike that time and ability permit. Day hikes down from the South Rim are best in the cooler months from October to April.
If your schedule brings you to the canyon in the hot months from May to September, or if you’re not up for a rigorous hike, we’ll stick to the rim. We could do a driving tour, visiting popular spots like Mather Point, Desert View, and Hopi Point, or, if you’re up for some easy walking, we can stroll along the level, paved paths of the Village Rim Trail or along the West Rim Drive, or maybe a lovely mile-long level stroll through the ponderosa forest out to the spectacular views at Shoshone Point.
You’ll have to work out timing and details with Larry, and he will need a lead time of at least two weeks, but it will be preparation time well spent to ensure a wonderful day.
And in addition to the guided tour, you will have the opportunity to have a lasting, permanent personal imprint on the Grand Canyon Panorama Project, by sponsoring a panorama in the same manner as is offered at the $500 level. We now, however, are talking multiple panoramas, at least two, one for each $500 of your contribution. Click here for more details on becoming a sponsor of the Grand Canyon Panorama Project.
