Donate via Amazon Smile
Open the Amazon Shopping app on your phone
Open Settings within the app
Open Settings by tapping the three horizontal lines (aka the “hamburger”) on the bottom right and scroll down to “Settings.”
Tap the button for “Turn on AmazonSmile”
You’ll need to follow the three-step setup process. Note that Amazon requires you to turn on notifications to be able to use AmazonSmile on your phone.
Make note of your renewal date
Amazon asks that you renew your AmazonSmile donation every six months. This is easy but required. When six months are up, you’ll have to choose your favorite charity again. If you don’t, purchases made until you do will not count.
Confirm that AmazonSmile is active before your next purchase
Look for AmazonSmile at the top of the app as you browse. You’ll also see your chosen charity on the confirmation screen.
Please note, when shopping from your web browser on your computer you need to make the purchase through smile.amazon.com for our Foundation to benefit from your eligible purchases (on the app it applies automatically).
