Amazon Smile
Brothers, many of you may make purchases from Amazon.  If so, you are now challenged to utilize Smile Amazon, https://smile.amazon.com, where you are able to select your charity to contribute .05% of your qualifying purchase towards the North Carolina Scottish Rite Masonic Foundation (NCSRMF) automatically.
All purchases must be made using Smile Amazon log in.  Any other Amazon purchases will not qualify.  Our receiving account has been set up and distributions will be received quarterly.
How does our NCSRMF 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.
How does AmazonSmile work?
When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization from almost one million eligible organizations. In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, customers must first select a charitable organization. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer’s selected charitable organization.
What is the AmazonSmile Foundation?
The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations selected by our customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.
Brothers, the children in North Carolina a counting on your continuing financial support.
