A Word From Our Founder
ďAs museums increasingly find themselves fighting for limited charitable and governmental resources, it became obvious that museums need new avenues to improve financial independence. ShopforMuseums.com became a simple way to raise awareness of the need for financial support while providing an easy way for anyone to donate to help their favorite organization. Please join us in celebrating the importance of museums and help to preserve their place in our society for years to come.Ē
