Support Phi Kappa Phi by Shopping Amazon

Feb 15, 2021

Did you know that you can support Phi Kappa Phi without giving any money? That is right! Your Amazon purchases could generate donations to the Society automatically and at no cost to you.

AmazonSmile is an Amazon program that automatically donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases to the charity of your choice. It does not change the price you pay; it simply donates to us.

Which products are eligible for charitable donations? 
Tens of millions of products sold through Amazon are eligible for donations. When shopping Amazon, look for eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.

Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile? 
Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.

How do I shop to support Phi Kappa Phi? 
Whether you prefer to shop on the Amazon mobile app or a desktop, Amazon makes it simple to support the Society each time you make a purchase.

Shop the Amazon Mobile App
First, in Chrome, Firefox or Safari, click here to make sure you have selected The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi as the charity you wish to support. Then follow the steps below to start supporting us on your mobile app:

  1. Open the Amazon Shopping app on your device and log in.
  2. Tap Settings in the main menu.
  3. Tap AmazonSmile and follow the on-screen instructions to start giving each time you shop.

Shop Amazon on Your Desktop
Click here to log in to your Amazon account and start shopping. You will see Supporting: The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi in the top left corner, and every eligible purchase will generate a donation.

Ensure your purchases always support the Society by installing the Smilematic browser extension. Smilematic was developed to help shoppers who might forget to access Amazon through our AmazonSmile link. It can be installed on Chrome, Firefox and Safari and will automatically route all Amazon shopping experiences through AmazonSmile.

Can I receive a tax deduction for amounts donated from my purchases on AmazonSmile? 
Donations are made by the AmazonSmile Foundation and are not tax deductible by you.

The AmazonSmile Foundation has already donated $237 million to more than one million charitable organizations, so what are you waiting for? Set up AmazonSmile on your desktop or mobile device today and start donating, at no cost to you!
