You can choose from over one million organizations to support.
Basically, it’s the same site 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.

Each quarter, the AmazonSmile Foundation makes donations by electronic funds transfer. Donations are transferred approximately 45 days after the end of each calendar quarter.
What is the AmazonSmile Foundation?
The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program.
