Alliance Purchasing Cooperative

An exclusive benefit for Tier 2 and Tier 3 member museums

The Alliance Purchasing Cooperative will help you save money on purchases across your museum’s operations. We designed it for our museum members so that your collective buying power will bring cost savings not available to individual institutions.

You can choose from national suppliers in categories that you use most:

  • Collections care

  • Visitor experience and safety

  • Event rentals and services

  • Facility maintenance

  • Capital improvements

  • General museum operations

When every dollar counts, you may save 10% to 75% on supplies and materials.

Easy Access

To learn more about the suppliers and to get started saving on your purchases, go to the Alliance Purchasing Cooperative website. You can get more details about each program and contact the suppliers that interest you. No signing up or logging in required. The supplier will verify your eligibility as a Tier 2 or Tier 3 member and enroll you in its program.

What if my museum is a Tier 1 member?

We encourage our Tier 1 members to examine the Alliance Purchasing Cooperative benefits and to consider upgrading to Tier 2 or Tier 3 membership. You may find that you can save more than you will pay for annual dues.
