SGF has been a participating charity in the Amazon Smile program since the program began in mid-2014. Although not a huge contributor to SGF’s revenue, every penny does help provide summer camp scholarships for the wonderful kids we serve.
SGF received its highest ever quarterly distribution – $156.91 – from Amazon Smile for the first quarter of 2020, growing the total SGF has raised since we joined this program to $1,317.42 (which makes us and the kids we serve smile :)).
How does this program work? It’s pretty simple and seamless: Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of all eligible purchases whenever you shop on Amazon, provided you designate SGF as your charity of choice.
To register and get started, go to http://smile.amazon.com/ch/04-3565429. Then, just remember to enter the Amazon site through www.smile.amazon.com (rather than the usual amazon.com). Your shopping experience will be exactly the same, you will incur no additional charges or fees, and the kids SGF serves will smile in appreciation! Please keep in mind that SGF does not have any way to know who has shopped on Amazon, or what they have purchased (so we are not able to thank anyone individually). SGF just receives a transfer into its bank account on a quarterly basis and we have to trust Amazon that they are handling Smile disbursements correctly.
