Do You Shop Amazon?

Technology, busy schedules, demanding jobs, and the Coronavirus pandemic have changed the way our society now shops. We no longer need to go into a brick-and-mortar store within a specified range of hours. People all over the globe have become accustomed to searching the internet, buying online with the ease of direct shipping, and shopping at any time of the day that fits within their schedule. Shopping has become easy, but supporting community organizations and charities has also become easier than ever through AmazonSmile!

AmazonSmile allows customers to support charitable organizations every time they shop through the Amazon platform with no additional steps or cost. Amazon donates 0.5% of the eligible purchase price to the charity of one’s choice – it’s a win-win for everyone! Unbelievably, all the approved United States charities participating in AmazonSmile have received a cumulative total of $285,795,312.80 as of August 2021.

The Capital District Kiwanis Foundation is an approved organization that participates in the AmazonSmile program. To support the Foundation with your online purchases throughout the year, you need to designate us as your preferred charity. As of August 2021, the Capital District Kiwanis Foundation has raised $40.15 through AmazonSmile thanks to the generosity of many individuals.
