Macy's Welcoming Participants for Annual Charitable Event

NEW YORK-Sign-up begins now for charities interested in participating in Macy's eighth annual national "Shop For A Cause" charity shopping event that takes place in August. Macy's Shop For A Cause is a one-day-only shopping event created to support local charities' fundraising efforts. Since 2006, the event has helped raise more than $46 million for thousands of charities across the country.

To qualify to participate in Shop For A Cause, charitable organizations must have a 501(c)3 or other recognized tax-exempt status. To apply, qualified charitable organizations should log onto macys.com/shopforacause and apply online. Macy's will provide participating organizations with shopping passes to sell for $5 each and the organization will keep 100 percent of the proceeds for every shopping pass that it sells.

"Giving back is a key component of Macy's culture," said Martine Reardon, Macy's chief marketing officer. "We are honored to offer our customers an easy and convenient way to make a positive difference in their communities and in the lives of others, while enjoying great savings at Macy's."
