Are you an Amazon shopper? We have introduced a new way our congregants can contribute to the Beth Israel community in an ongoing manner is through the Amazon Smile program. AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate 0.5% of every one of your eligible Amazon purchases to your favorite charitable organization.
To select Beth Israel as your charity of choice, click on the Amazon Smile, sign in and select Congregation Beth Israel as your charity partner or use the link at the bottom of this page.
Which products on AmazonSmile are eligible for charitable donations?
Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.
Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile?
Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same. Make sure you are logged in at AmazonSmile each time you shop.
How much of my purchase does Amazon donate?
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. From time to time, we may offer special, limited time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organizations. Special terms and restrictions may apply. Please see the relevant promotion for complete details.
Can I receive a tax deduction for amounts donated from my purchases on AmazonSmile?
Donations are made by the AmazonSmile Foundation and are not tax deductible by you.
Do I have to start via the link below every time I want my purchases counted towards a donation?
You can, if it’s convenient — but it’s not necessary. It’s just one way to reach the site. But you can also reach it by typing “smile.amazon.com” into your browser address bar, and you can set it as a bookmark or favorite for future use. Once you have registered your choice of charity, you don’t have to change it.
Oops, I think I registered for the wrong charity, what can I do?
If you see anything other than “Supporting: Congregation Beth Israel” at the top of the page, you can correct this by going to the dropdown under “My Account,” clicking on “Change My Charity” and then searching for Congregation Beth Israel.
We hope you’ll choose Beth Israel and recommend us to your family and friends. Thank you.
