The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations selected by their customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.
When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from almost one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select Grey Nun Academy as their charity of choice. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.
AmazonSmile and Amazon.com are the same company with the same products. The only difference is that when ordering through AmazonSmile, you are donating to GNA through the AmazonSmile Foundation. Please share the link for GNA’s AmazonSmile account (https://smile.amazon.com/ch/23-2736661) with friends and family to support our school!
