AmazonSmile — Donate while you shop!
Oceanside Pop Warner’s Board of Directors is happy to announce that we are now a part of the AmazonSmile program. This means that when a person shops at Amazon through
www.Smile.Amazon.com, Amazon will donate to Oceanside Pop Warner a small percentage of the proceeds. In essence, when people shop at Amazon, they can donate to OPW with little to no effort on their behalf.
Getting started is easy. Parents can go to our direct link at https://smile.amazon.com/ch/33-0674486 or register manually through smile.amazon.com. After you add OPW as your preferred charity, donating will be simple and automatic. Just make sure that when you shop at Amazon.com, you go to Smile.Amazon.com. It’s the same company, just a different part of the webiste.
Listed below is a few questions people may have about the program:
What is the Amazon Smile program?
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers.
When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from almost one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.
Is there any cost to charitable organizations or to customers?
No. There is no cost to charitable organizations or to AmazonSmile customers. The shopping experience is identical to Amazon.com with the added benefit that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate to the charitable organizations selected by customers.
Do you charge any administrative fees or take any deduction from the donation amount?
No. Charities must register to receive donations and have a valid bank account to which we can route donations, but there is no charge to participate and we do not deduct any fees from the donation amount.
