Give Back to the CFEF while Shopping with AmazonSmile

Amazon is the world’s leading e-commerce website where you can find virtually anything you need.  While everyone is familiar with Amazon, not as many are familiar with AmazonSmile.  This blog will describe the benefits of AmazonSmile and why you should sign up!

AmazonSmile-logo-300x158-2AmazonSmile is identical to Amazon in all ways except one.  By browsing and purchasing items on AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your purchases to the charitable organization of your choice.  Nothing else is different and there is no catch.  Same products, same prices, and same service.

The purchase price is defined as the amount paid for your item(s) minus any rebates and excludes shipping and handling, gift-wrapping, taxes, or service charges.  Signing up is easy.  Visit and log into your Amazon account.  You will then select “Cypress Fairbanks Educational Foundation” as your charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping.  Amazon will remember your selection so you will not have to repeat this process every time you shop.  While 0.5% may not seem like a lot, the cumulative effect is substantial.  Through the support of our community, the donations add up and allow our Foundation to achieve its mission.
