What if – while online shopping for textbooks, the latest tunes for your playlist, or some new Skechers– part of the purchase price was automatically donated to Forté Foundation? Well, that is possible – thanks to Amazon, a Forté sponsor.
What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a website (www.smile.amazon.com) operated by Amazon that offers the same range of products, prices, and shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on www.smile.amazon.com, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to Forté Foundation.
Where do I sign up?
Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations – marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages.
Amazon and AmazonSmile accounts will be managed as a single account, but you must shop on www.smile.amazon.com to enable donations.
Signing up to give to Forté Foundation on AmazonSmile is simple:
- Go to smile.amazon.com.
- When prompted to select a charitable organization to receive donations from your purchases, select “The Forté Foundation.”
- AmazonSmile will remember your selection, and every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation.
Is there a cost?
The best news? There is no cost to charitable organizations or to AmazonSmile customers. The shopping experience is identical to Amazon.com with the added benefit that AmazonSmile will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to Forté Foundation. The purchase price for each item is the sale price, excluding shipping, handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, and service charges, and less any rebates, returns, and bad debt.
