AmazonSmile is an automatic way for you to support a non-profit organization of your choice through your existing Amazon.com account. Visit smile.amazon.com and either create an Amazon account or log in with your existing account. Next, choose a charity from the search field (*Note: when searching for Middlesex Community College Foundation, Inc., make sure to choose Middletown, Conn., rather than Bedford, Mass.).
Any eligible purchases you make while logged in under AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price (before taxes, service charges, gift wrapping, and shipping and handling) to the MxCC Foundation with no cost to the purchaser.
Eligible products for AmazonSmile are marked as such while placing an order. Orders cannot be placed through the Amazon.com site and any returns will result in loss of donated funds. You must be logged into AmazonSmile in order for a donation to be made; this also applies to items purchased off of your Wishlists.
Once logged into smile.amazon.com, you can also take part in special events where Amazon will offer to donate various monetary amounts to your charity if a certain product is purchased. Amazon will also alert shoppers to deals via their AmazonSmile Facebook page and Twitter feed.
Charities can be changed at any time, and you can log back and forth from your Amazon.com and AmazonSmile accounts without having to alter saved address/billing information.
Amazon will transfer funds accumulated through purchases to the MxCC Foundation on a quarterly basis.
