Do you shop on Amazon? Of course you do, what were we thinking?! You can make a difference in a student’s life every time you have the itch to shop. The more you shop, the more you’re giving back. So, if you needed an excuse to purchase books, school supplies or that amazing leather jacket you’ve had your eye on, go ahead and do it through AmazonSmile and select the Minneapolis Community and Technical College Foundation for your donation.

Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to MCTC whenever you shop on AmazonSmile. So what are you waiting for? Start shopping!

What is Amazon Smile?
Amazon Smile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. Every item available for purchase on www.amazon.com is also available on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) at the same price. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages.

Why Should I Use AmazonSmile?
It’s free to you, compatible with Prime and .5% of the purchase price of eligible products is sent to the MCTC Foundation (when you select it as your charity). This money is used to support student scholarships and emergency funding for our students.

On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. It will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation to the MCTC Foundation.

If you already use AmazonSmile, you can change your charity at any time. Your AmazonSmile purchases after the change count towards your newly selected charity. To change your charity, sign in to smile.amazon.com on your desktop or mobile phone browser and simply select “Change your Charity” in “Your Account.” You can search for Minneapolis Community and Technical College Foundation in the charity search list.
