Though we prefer you shop local at one of our excellent neighborhood shops, we know that sometimes you need something they just don't have. Luckily, there's still a way to benefit our neighborhood even if you shop online.
AmazonSmile 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.

Here's how you can have a portion of your Amazon Smile purchases donated to the Summit-University Planning Council:

2. Under "Select a charity" use the search bar to type in " Summit-University Planning Council ."
3. Select "Summit-University Planning Council" from the list of charities.
4. Check the box that says "Yes, I understand that I must always start at smile.amazon.com to support Summit-University Planning Council." Then click the "Start Shopping" button.
Whenever you log on to make an Amazon purchase, make sure to start from smile.amazon.com. You may even want to bookmark that page. Savvy users may also want to check out the SmileAlways extension for Chrome web browsers. SmileAlways automatically redirects all Amazon.com pages to Smile.Amazon.com.
