Business Manager, Mary Borowski here, offering my first guest-blog post. As you might expect, I have a finance-related tip.

With Mother’s Day, graduation, and Father’s Day gift giving on the horizon, I can suggest a great way to shop and help the Woodson Art Museum, too.

Online shopping has become a way of life today. In 2012, an estimated 42% of Americans will shop online.

Here’s how you can make a difference for the Woodson Art Museum, while shopping online for gifts, travel, art supplies, clothing, and more.

Visit the Shop for Museums website first when shopping online. Using it as a portal to participating vendors’ websites ensures the Museum receives a percentage of each purchase.

Follow these easy steps:
1. Go to, and shop as a registered or guest user.
2. Select Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum from the Museum Partner list, found via the tab or search box.
3. Select a vendor or category to begin shopping. The rest is automatic! After you make a purchase, depending on the retailer, the Museum receives between .5 and 8 percent of each purchase.

Please spread the word and the website link to friends and family and happy shopping online!
