President’s Announcement – AmazonSmile Program
Greetings unto the Populace of the SCA,
As 2017 comes to a close, we wanted to update you on our partnership with the AmazonSmile program. As of November 2017, AmazonSmile has donated an additional $880.68 to the Society For Creative Anachronism, Inc. for the period of July 1 to September 30.
The total received from AmazonSmile since July, 2014 totals $8,304.48.
It is your continued participation in this partnership that has made it a great success. For those of you already participating, we send you a big thank you. We appreciate your continued support of this partnership and SCA Inc.
For those who haven’t heard of the AmazonSmile program, here is the original announcement:
Many of us shop at Amazon for a wide range of products. Did you know that the SCA can benefit from each purchase you make at no additional charge to you?
- Go to smile.amazon.com.
- Sign into your account and a “pop up” page will appear.
- On the right side of the page, at the bottom is a “search” window.
- Type in: Society for Creative Anachronism and click the search button.
- Click on the top one and you are done.
Your donations will be automatic for any purchase within the Amazon Smile program (which is most merchandise).
You can also use the following link: http://smile.amazon.com/ch/94-1698556
Amazon donates 0.5% of each purchase to the non-profit organizations of your choice and the Society for Creative Anachronism is one of those organizations. This is a painless way to support our organization. These donations will be deposited quarterly from the AmazonSmile Foundation into a separate SCA corporate account dedicated for these donations.
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 their customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.
Here at SCA Inc., we thank you, and wish all of you well in 2018.
Yours in Service,
President, Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc.
