Holiday shopping is upon us. So make AmazonSmile your go-to for finding great deals on gifts while supporting your favorite charitable organization.
American Legion Charities Inc. and the American Legion Child Welfare Foundation (CWF) are two charitable organizations featured on AmazonSmile – a simple and automatic way to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. On AmazonSmile you will find the exact same low prices, vast selection, and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com but with the added bonus that AmazonSmile will donate a portion of the purchase price to the charitable organization of your choice.
Donations to American Legion Charities provides assistance to veterans, service members, and their families with financial support in times of hardship, as well as with expert, free-of-charge assistance through the VA benefits process that includes appeals and other benefits due to them as veterans.
The American Legion Child Welfare Foundation provides grants to nonprofits that seek to enhance the lives of children's physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs through resources, projects, and programs. For 2021, the CWF provided $740,889 in grants to 17 nonprofits.
To support The American Legion, go to smile.amazon.com, sign into your normal Amazon account and then type in “American Legion Charities Inc” or "the Child Welfare Foundation" in the search box when the prompt comes up. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation.
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5 percent 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, Amazon 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.
Only purchases at smile.amazon.com – not at Amazon.com or the mobile app – support any charities.
