Shopping Online Raises Money for the Society

The Northbrook Historical Society has partnered with, a nationally recognized online fundraising program for U.S. museums, parks, zoos and other education-related, not-for-profit organizations.

At no extra cost, individuals and businesses can support the Northbrook Historical Society each time they shop online with hundreds of national stores, including Best Buy, Ebay, OfficeMax, Land’s End, Target, Amazon, and many more.

Shoppers simply go to, sign in, select the museum you would like to support, then select a store from the shopping directory. Shoppers will be directed to the exact same site as if they went there directly, but by starting with Shop for Museums, a donation will be generated from the purchase amount. Donations get tracked automatically!

Thanks for taking the time to make a difference in our community by supporting the Northbrook Historical Society when you shop online.
