Amid the festivities, shopping, and time with family, the holiday season is also an important time for charitable organizations, with about a quarter of annual donations being made in the last two months of the year. With AmazonSmile, a service provided by Amazon where 0.5% of purchases are given to a charitable organization of your choice, you can help your favorite organization meet its end-of-year fundraising goals by shopping. And with Black Friday and Cyber Monday kicking off the holiday shopping season later this month, there is plenty of opportunity to do just that.
If you are not already registered with AmazonSmile, you can do so here. You’ll be prompted to sign into your Amazon account (or to create one, if you don’t have one already—this is free). Once this step is completed, you are set to shop for the holidays and beyond, and have Amazon contribute 0.5% of your purchases to the League of American Orchestras, your home orchestra, or another charity, on your behalf!
Charitable donations allow the League to tackle “the big issues,” promote innovation, and significantly impact the orchestral field. Our wide portfolio of work cannot be sustained by membership dues and program fees alone. We hope you will consider making us your dedicated AmazonSmile charitable organization.
