MSA Museum Store Sunday Fund

Museum Store Sunday is MSA’s global advocacy campaign designed to communicate to the world and general public, the value and importance of non-profit retail with its curated products and unique experiences. Museum Store Sunday puts the spotlight on museum stores through a dedicated day—the Sunday following Thanksgiving. In 2018 more than 1,000 museum stores participated, representing all fifty states and the District of Columbia, fifteen countries, and four continents.

We need your financial support to further the continued success and growth of Museum Store Sunday. In 2017 and 2018, it cost $60 for each institution to participate in Museum Store Sunday – a cost absorbed by MSA and partially offset by sponsors’ donations. Help us fund this groundbreaking initiative so we can continue shining a global spotlight on our museum stores and cultural institutions for future years.
