Amazon has created a way for churches and other charitable organizations to receive donations, generated by anyone who shops at AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets you enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to Epiphany.
On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. We encourage you to choose Epiphany. Your choice will be saved and then every eligible purchase you make on AmazonSmile will result in a donation to Epiphany.
There is no cost to Epiphany or to AmazonSmile customers. You will have access to the same products, features, services, and great low prices as on Amazon.com. The shopping experience is identical to Amazon.com with the added benefit that the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Epiphany Lutheran Church.
When you shop on smile.amazon.com using an internet browser on your desktop or laptop computer, your mobile phone, or your tablet, then your purchases of eligible products (marked “eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on the detail pages) will result in donations. Purchases that are not made using an internet browser (for instance, using the
Amazon Shopping App, Kindle Store, FireTV, Amazon Dash, or Amazon Echo) are not currently eligible for donations.
Amazon will not share individual customer information with charitable organizations even if you select to support them through your shopping on AmazonSmile. Please see the Amazon.com Privacy Notice for more information regarding our sharing information with third parties.
We hope that you will choose to register and benefit Epiphany Lutheran Church the next time you visit Amazon on-line. Simply type in www.smile.amazon.com and shop till you drop! Donations are paid on a quarterly basis and are directly deposited into the church’s bank account.
Thank you in advance for your support of this opportunity for our church.
