The holiday shopping season has arrived. With so many of us purchasing gifts for others (or just things for ourselves!) on Amazon, we’re reminding TIRFers about an approach to support our work. Please consider learning more about Amazon Smile below, including how TIRF can benefit from your purchases on Amazon. You can also tell friends and family members about this easy option for supporting the Foundation.
Amazon Smile Donation FAQ
How does it work?
When you shop at smile.amazon.com, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to TIRF. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know: same products, same prices, same service.
Which products on AmazonSmile are eligible for charitable donations?
Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.
Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile?
Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.
How do I designate TIRF as my charity on AmazonSmile?
On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you need to select TIRF to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation.
