Shop at smile.amazon.com and support the Mesalands Community College Foundation
December 15, 2014
The Mesalands Community College Foundation, Inc. is now part of the AmazonSmile program, operated by Amazon. When consumers shop for eligible purchases on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5 percent of the purchase price to the non-profit of their choice. There is no cost to the charitable organization, or to the consumer to participate. The Mesalands Community College Foundation is among nearly one million public charitable organizations, that are taking advantage of the AmazonSmile program.
“This is a great way to support the Mesalands Community College Foundation, or any charity for that matter, by shopping for routine purchases on the AmazonSmile website. It’s very simple to set up and it’s automatic. The best part is the fact that it doesn’t cost the consumer anything,” James Streetman, Secretary/Clerk of the Mesalands Community College Board of Trustees and Secretary of the Mesalands Community College Foundation Board.
To sign up for AmazonSmile, visit smile.amazon.com and then select the Mesalands Community College Foundation. Then every eligible purchase that is made through the AmazonSmile website (smile.amazon.com), will result in a donation to the Mesalands Foundation. There are tens of millions of products that are eligible for donations and will be marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation,” on their product detail pages. Consumers will also be able to manage their purchases and other account information on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile using a single account.
“I encourage everyone to sign up for this program to help the Mesalands Community College Foundation,” Streetman said. “Every little bit counts when it comes to supporting the students at Mesalands Community College.”
