Give Back Each Time You Shop with AmazonSmile

by in News November 19, 2020

Did you know that you can donate to Pathways each time you make a purchase on Amazon? The Amazon Smile program makes it easy to donate a portion of each purchase to the nonprofit of your choice. Set up is easy and ensures your support for our programs on a regular basis – at no cost to you!   

How it works: When you shop, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to a charity of your choice. The AmazonSmile website has the same products for the same prices that you’d find on Amazon.com. However, it’s important to note: You can only make a donation when you start your shopping from smile.amazon.com, rather than the main website.

Get started: To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com on your web browser. It might be helpful to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping from this page. This ensures your designated charity gets a donation.  

Access on mobile: To use AmazonSmile on mobile, you must activate it in the Amazon Shopping app for iOS and Android phones. To access, download and then open the Amazon app and find ’Settings’ in the main menu (☰). Tap on ‘AmazonSmile’ and follow the on-screen instructions to turn on AmazonSmile on your phone.

Start today in time for your holiday shopping! Visit this page where you will be prompted to change your charity to Pathways and ensure your donation each time you shop.
