How to Set Up Your Non-Profit’s Amazon Smile Account
AmazonSmile is a program owned and operated by Amazon with the exact same interface everyone knows and loves from Amazon.com. This includes the exact same merchandise, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. However, when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates 5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.
Thanks to many generous consumers, Amazon has raised over $100 million for charities through Amazon Smile. Hundreds of nonprofits have benefited from this service. In fact, the ASPCA could provide a years’ worth of food for 8,750 dogs and 7,000 cats just from the donations it has received so far. All of these donations are generated by customers selecting their charity of choice and shopping at the same Amazon interface they know and love. Easy money, right? Let’s get your not-for-profit Amazon Smile account up and running so you too can benefit from all Amazon Smile has to offer.
