ABHM Foundation Announces Fundraising Partnership with Amazon.com’s “Amazon Smile” Program

Posted on: May 12, 2020

The ABHM Foundation is excited to announce a new charitable partnership with Amazon.com. Amazon’s “Amazon Smile” program is a website operated by Amazon with all of the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products back to Foundation!

Here’s how it works. When supporters of ABHM shop at smile.amazon.com (smile.amazon.com), they’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added benefit that Amazon will donate 0.5% of their eligible purchases back to the ABHM Foundation.

How to shop at Amazon Smile: 

To shop at Amazon Smile simply click on the following link (and bookmark it for future use):

If you have never shopped at Amazon.com, you will have to register as a first-time user.  If you are a returning Amazon customer you may have to enter your current Amazon password. Then do your Amazon shopping like you always do. Every succeeding eligible purchase through Amazon Smile will automatically result in a donation to the ABHM Foundation. When you are shopping, you will see the words: Supporting American Baptist Homes of the Midwest Foundation below the product search bar.  Seeing this verifies a portion of your purchases are being donated back to us.

Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on Amazon Smile?

Yes!  You use the same account on Amazon.com and Amazon Smile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for Amazon Smile donation” on their product detail pages (Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible).

Can I use my smart phone and the Amazon App to order through Amazon Smile?
