AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support our co-op every time you shop at Amazon.com, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization.
As a registered 501c3 non-profit, our school qualifies as a charitable organization. See our website for more info and to get step by step instructions on how to use a portion of the money you spend on amazon for our school.
In 2017, our Board of Directors voted to suspend our Amazon Smile account due to our values not aligning with Amazon as a whole, particularly with Amazon’s decision to allow advertising from companies who we feel do not match our values of building community through love, equality, and a celebration of diversity. Since making that decision, we have received feedback from our community that they would like to be able to support our school through Amazon Smile, so the Board voted to reinstate our account. We still hope that Amazon will break with advertisers who are not in line with our values, but we value the contributions made on behalf of those who shop at Amazon. If you have an active Amazon account, please consider donating your Amazon Smile dollars to our school.
