Thank you so much for allowing us to be part of a great event. We really enjoyed our day and met lots of people. Also we made some much needed money for our little rescue. Lilly and April were great. We look forward to next year.

Participation Questions

Q. When can I sign-up or Shop For A Cause?

Registration is now closed. Registration of charities for 2017 will be available starting in May, 2017.

Q. How do I know if my group is qualified to participate?

Any nonprofit organization with a 501(c) or 170(c)1 tax exempt status, school booster group or religious organization is eligible to participate.

Q. What if I participated last year?

Please note if you have participated in past Shop For A Cause events you will need to sign up again this year. Your account information is not saved from prior years. Therefore please go to the sign-up page and sign-up again this year.

Q. My organization has many chapters across the country. Can we all sign up?

Absolutely! Let’s talk! Please contact us here. (Please allow 5 business days for a response.)

Q. What is the maximum number of savings passes my group can sell?

50-100 savings passes will be given to each charity at a time. Once you sell and report your initial quantity you are welcome to come back for additional savings passes. Larger quantities of initial savings passes can be specially requested.

Q. Are we able to sell savings passes in stores?

We encourage all participating charities to leverage their own networks and sell the savings passes to their constituents and supporters. Charities are not permitted to sell savings passes in the stores. Starting mid-August, Macy's stores will be selling the pass to benefit March of Dimes.

Q. Can I sell savings passes online?

Participating charities may sell savings passes electronically. If your charity opts to sell do so, you may download an electronic savings pass (PDF) from the RESOURCES tab of the Shop For A Cause website after logging in. Please note that if your organization selects this option to sell you will need to ensure that you have capability to process payment electronically as Macy’s cannot provide infrastructure support.

Q. How often do I need to report our savings pass sales?

Participating organizations are responsible for distributing savings passes among their staff and volunteers. Your group is responsible for developing a system to track savings pass sales and update your savings pass sales weekly on this website.

Macy’s uses reported savings pass sales information to assist in planning support resources and staffing for the Shop For a Cause event.
