Saturday Finances—Charitable Giving: Amazon Smile

Happy New Year!  Give every time you buy on Amazon

One of my many boxes from Christmas



Amazon Smile

This is an easy way to give.

AmazonSmile is a charitable foundation set up by Amazon.

It works seamlessly with your Amazon account.

Bookmark the link to start shopping through the AmazonSmile donation portal each time you want to make a purchase.  Check at the top of your Amazon page to make sure that you are linked up each time you shop.

Access on your mobile device. 

AmazonSmile donates 0.5 % of the purchase price of eligible items, minus rebates; shipping & handling; gift-wrapping; taxes; or service charges. 

Donations are not tax deductible by the individual.  You are giving to the foundation, which makes the donation to your chosen charity.  

Select a charity from nearly 1 Million eligible 501(c)(3) public charities & change it at any time.  It's fun to search for your fave charity!

If you represent a charitable org, you can register your charity with AmazonSmile at no cost to the organization.

More info about registering your charity.


Easy-peasy!  I've been using it for a year.
