ATTENTION ALL ON-LINE
FUMC Alvin has identified a way for you to SHOP AND CONTRIBUTE at the same time.
AMAZON has initiated a program where they will make a contribution to FUMC Alvin based on salesgenerated through their AmazonSmile Program. AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support FUMC Alvin every time you shop on line.
You use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com). You are offered the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as Amazon.com, including your Amazon Prime member benefits. All paymet methods available on
Amazon.com, including Shop with Points, are available for use on AmazonSmile. Your account settings are the same. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com). the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from eligible purchases to FUMC Alvin.
On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization to receive donations. FUMC Alvin is listed in the charity section as ALVIN FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH. After that, smile.amazon.com will remember your selection and every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation to FUMC Alvin.
You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages.There is no cost to FUMC Alvin or to AmazonSmile customers. Donations are generally transferred approximately 45 days after the end of each calendar quarter. Donations are made by the AmazonSmile Foundation and are not tax deductible by you.
Purchases that are not made using an internet browser (for instance, using the Amazon Shopping App, Kindle Store, FireTV, Amazon Dash, or Amazon Echo) are not currently eligible for donations.
