Get Started

How do I register and receive donations for my charitable organization?

Registering your organization is easy. In order to register and receive donations, you must be an official representative of an eligible organization, and then follow these easy steps:

  1. Search for your charitable organization by name or EIN number and then select the organization you represent. Be sure to confirm you are selecting the correct organization, as many charitable organizations have similar names.
  2. Create an organization administrator account and accept the AmazonSmile Participation Agreement on behalf of your organization.
  3. Verify your email address (we recommend that you use an email address that is associated with your charitable organization).
  4. Submit your organization’s bank account information.
  5. Upload a copy of a voided check or bank statement to verify your organization’s bank account information.

What is an organization administrator?

An organization administrator is an official representative of an organization that has authority to access and manage AmazonSmile program information on behalf of their charitable organization.

Why do you need an email address for my charitable organization?

We require a valid email address so that we can communicate important program information to each registered organization. From time to time we will send emails with information about your organization’s donation amounts and information about AmazonSmile program promotions.

Can you mail our organization a donation check instead of sending an electronic funds transfer?

We do not mail donation checks due to the expense of check processing and fulfillment. We distribute donations using electronic transfer to reduce operational expenses so we can donate % of the funds to eligible charitable organizations.

Will customers still be able to select my charitable organization if I don’t register?

Yes. As long as your organization is listed by GuideStar and meets our eligibility criteria, customers will be able to select your organization. However, no donations will be made to your organization until you complete your free registration. See "What happens if we do not register " under Receive Donations for more information on how donations are processed for organizations that do not register and provide bank account information.

What happens if another person has already registered my charitable organization and they were not authorized to do so?

If your organization has been registered by an unauthorized person please contact us.

About AmazonSmile

What is AmazonSmile?

AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. AmazonSmile is available at smile.amazon.com on your web browser and can be activated in the Amazon Shopping app for iOS and Android phones. When you shop AmazonSmile, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added benefit that AmazonSmile will donate % of your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. You can choose from over one million organizations to support.

What are the eligibility requirements for charitable organizations to participate?

Organizations must be registered and in good standing with the IRS as a (c)(3) to be eligible to participate.

Organizations must submit bank account information online to receive donation payments. Organizations that engage in, support, encourage, or promote intolerance, hate, terrorism, violence, money laundering, or other illegal activities are not eligible to participate. Amazon relies on the US Office of Foreign Assets Control and the Southern Poverty Law Center to determine which registered charities fall into these groups. Charitable organizations must also adhere to the AmazonSmile Participation Agreement to maintain eligibility. Charitable organizations may choose not to participate in AmazonSmile at any time. Although we aim to include only charitable organizations that are in good standing and do not engage in any of the activities described above, we cannot guarantee the good standing and/or conduct of any charitable organization. For complete details, see the AmazonSmile Participation Agreement.

No. Eligible charitable organizations must be qualified under Section (c)(3) and located in one of the 50 U.S. States, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, or the U.S. Virgin Islands.

What are spotlight charities?

From time to time we may highlight one or more charitable organizations from the total list of eligible organizations. We do this to make it easier for customers to choose an organization to support from the over one million available, but we do not endorse any particular organization or the causes they support. To apply for consideration as a spotlight charity, please submit a spotlight charity application. Note that you must first register your charitable organization at org.amazon.com.

Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.

May customers make direct donations to charitable organizations through the AmazonSmile program?

Customers can make direct donations and arrange for donated products to be delivered to charitable organizations through the AmazonSmile Charity Lists program on their browser or on their mobile device in the Amazon Shopping app. That program is the only AmazonSmile program that enables customers to make donations to charities at this time.

Receive Donations

How does my charity receive the donations?

Each quarter, the AmazonSmile Foundation makes donations to eligible charitable organizations by electronic funds transfer. Donations will be transferred approximately 45 days after the end of each calendar quarter. To account for product returns, a portion of the quarterly donations will be withheld until the next donation cycle, subject to any reduction due to returns from prior quarters. See the AmazonSmile Participation Agreement for more details.

What happens if we do not register our charitable organization and provide a bank account for an electronic transfer?

If you have not registered and have donations allocated to your organization, we will attempt to contact you with instructions on how to register. If you do not register your charitable organization, including providing accurate bank account information for an electronic transfer, the AmazonSmile Foundation will still track and store donations earned in each calendar quarter. Once you’ve registered your charitable organization, your organization will be eligible to receive in the next donation cycle all donation amounts that were previously allocated to your organization and were not subject to reallocation under the Participation Agreement. Please note that donations that have been allocated to an unregistered charitable organization from customers that made their first supporting purchase more than eight full quarters ago and have not been distributed will be reallocated to other registered charitable organizations.

How much of the customers’ purchase price does Amazon donate?

The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate % of the purchase price from customers’ eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organizations they select. The purchase price for each item is the sale price, excluding shipping, handling, and gift-wrapping fees, taxes, and service charges, and less any rebates, returns, and bad debt. Certain items are not eligible for and will not result in donations.

Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible. For more information, see Qualifying Purchases in the AmazonSmile Participation Agreement.

The minimum amount a charitable organization must accrue to receive a quarterly donation is $ If the total donation amount due to your organization, based on the purchases by all customers who selected your charitable organization, is less than $ as of the end of a given calendar quarter, the AmazonSmile Foundation will hold the donation amounts and add them to donation amounts allocated to your organization in subsequent calendar quarters. However, if you have an accrued donation that remains below $ for four consecutive quarters, the AmazonSmile Foundation will disburse accrued donation amounts to you in the donation cycle following the fourth quarter, even if the donation amount is less than $ For complete details, see the AmazonSmile Participation Agreement.

Can I view the amount of donations my charitable organization has received?

We currently do not provide reports that enable viewing of donations received.

I registered but didn't receive a donation. What happened?

Also, you will not receive a donation disbursement if your organization’s earnings are below the minimum donation amount of $ Note that donations accrued during each calendar quarter are disbursed approximately 45 days after the end of that calendar quarter.

How it Works for Nonprofits

Registered U.S. public charitable (c)(3) organizations in good standing with the IRS can register on Amazon Smile for free. Charities maintain eligibility through the Amazon Smile Participation Agreement.

How To Register

It is easy to set up an Amazon Smile profile for your organization. First, you need to provide a valid email address to Amazon. Then, you need to appoint either yourself or one of your staff members to serve as the account administrator. Most organizations choose someone who has the authority to manage financial matters.

You must register your organization before you can receive the funds that people donate to it. Registering is easy. On the Amazon Smile site, search for your organization via its name or EIN, select it, and then create an administrator account. Submit your organization’s bank account information and finally, verify the account using a voided check or a bank statement. It’s that easy!

How Amazon Smile Works for Consumers

Customers first need to sign up to use Amazon Smile. They can complete this step by visiting smile.amazon.com and signing in with their Amazon credentials. Then, they can choose the charity they want to make a donation to. After that, it&#;s shop as usual. As long as an item is eligible for Amazon Smile, your nonprofit gets a donation. Most products on Amazon are eligible and it costs nothing for a customer to be a part of the program.

Now, people shopping on Amazon can be charitable without breaking the bank. Tell your employees, those who volunteer for your organization, and anyone else you can think of to sign up and join in. Make a push to get people to sign up before Prime Day, to maximize those sales for your nonprofit.

Getting Your Donations

Amazon pays out donations on a quarterly basis and places the funds in your account via electronic bank transfer. They do not mail paper checks.

It&#;s Easy

Amazon Smile is easy to set up and use, and that is a big part of why it works. You can consider it your organization’s free influencer marketing tool.

Amazon Smile is the ideal tool for Amazon customers to make a difference to an organization they know and trust. Do not let your organization miss out on this easy way to pick up donations that will help it function and flourish.
