Online Holiday Shopping Can Help Lake George Music Festival

When you buy anything online a small portion of your purchase goes to search engines like Google, Yahoo, or Bing as a commission. However, if you sign-up for Buy4.com you can have those proceeds redirected to Lake George Music Festival.

You are more than likely shopping online anyway; now you can make sure that your online shopping habits are helping Lake George Music Festival in the process. Signing up at buy4.com/lgmf is super simple and free, and it won’t cost you one cent more on your purchases.

The Buy4.com fundraising platform connects to more than 2,500 online retailers and has a product search and even thousands of coupons. The fundraising site has more than 1.5 million registered non-profits listed in its database, and anything from plane tickets on Expedia to books on Amazon count toward a donation towards the cause when you choose Lake George Music Festival.

The Lake George Music Festival is a publicly supported not-for-profit organization that presents a full week of open rehearsals, live concerts, interactive workshops, and outreach events to the Lake George community free of charge every August. The LGMF has brought together professionals, current students or faculty, and alumni from many prestigious institutions including the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, the symphonies of Atlanta, Richmond, New World, Dallas, Boise, Detroit, the Pittsburgh Opera, the Ying Quartet, Astral Artists, and nearly every music conservatory in the nation including the Curtis Institute of Music, the Juilliard School, and the Eastman School of Music.

Holiday shopping can feel overwhelming, but it helps knowing that money you’d be spending anyway (plus some online gifts for yourself, of course) is now going to a local good cause that affects your community.
