Stumbled across the ShopforMuseums.com website? Seen our logo in hundreds of museums, parks, zoos, historical societies, art centers and other related organizations across the U.S.?

ShopforMuseums.com is an online shopping portal where you can shop with hundreds of your favorite retail stores and have a percentage of your purchase amount donated for FREE back to a museum or related non-profit organization of your choice.

ShopforMuseums.com has partnered with over 1,000 online retailers, places like Best Buy, Sears.com, Target.com, Zappos, Abebooks, 1-800-Flowers and many more. The team at ShopforMuseums.com works with the retailers to bring you exclusive coupons and sales, all in one place, so that you can actually save money while shopping online and doing good at the same time.

The museum or related organization you decide to support with your free donation uses the funds for whatever they need. Most often, because they are non-profits, museums struggle with covering their operating costs each year- paying for electricity, security, staff salaries, office supplies, etc. Your donations help keep the doors open and museum programs available to your community.

Here’s how to use ShopforMuseums.com to create free donations for your favorite museum:

1. Go to http://www.shopformuseums.com/. If you haven’t registered yet, click the register button on the home page or at the top of right of the website. You can also use both of these places to sign in if you have previously registered, or you can choose to shop as a guest.

2. Select a museum or related organization from the Museum Partner list to receive your donation when you shop. You can always reach the list of our active participating museums by clicking on the Museum Partner tab up top. You can search for your museum by name, state or by alphabetical order.

3. Next, select a store and use the links to go to the store site to shop. Do your shopping like you normally would and check out. The rest is automatic! After you make a purchase, a percentage of your purchase amount gets tracked back and donated to the museum.

Thanks for making a difference! Get started today at ShopforMuseums.com.
