Thread: Use AmazonSmile to Fund SCI Research

    Use AmazonSmile to Fund SCI Research

    The Bennett Foundation for SCI Research (501c3) is set up at AmazonSmile to raise money for research at The Spinal Cord Injury Project at Rutgers. My foundation is 100% volunteer and all the money (minus costs) goes directly to SCI research.

    Think of how many purchases you make from Amazon! Now, 0.5% of eligible purchases can be designated for research at The Spinal Cord Injury Project. This link will take you to the page where you will be prompted to sign in with your existing Amazon account, or create an account. Log in or create an account. You will then be asked to "pick your own charitable organization". In the box, type 'Jim Bennett Foundation' and click search. Click the "select" button next to the Jim Bennett Foundation for SCI Research. Your existing Amazon account will now be linked to AmazonSmile.

    Happy Shopping!

    No difference, here's some info-

    How does AmazonSmile work?
    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.

    What is the AmazonSmile Foundation?
    The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations selected by our customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.
