Amazon Smile

Amazon has a program called AmazonSmile, which will automatically donate 0.5% of your purchases to the charity you select. It costs you (and the charitable organizations) nothing, and it’s just like shopping on Amazon’s regular site, including the same shopping cart & order history.

Are my contributions deductible?

The Foundation has received the public charity tax-exempt status 501(c)(3) from the US Internal Revenue Service. Contributions are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law. Tax ID # 16-1641295.

Can I make a contribution with securities?

Yes, please contact us at to get information on how to wire the securities between accounts.

What if I can’t contribute very much?

Every little bit helps towards building a campership. No donation is too small. Also, many employers have matching programs. A small donation from you could be doubled by asking your employer to match it.

What about a planned giving option?

A charitable bequest can be made by will. In addition, we are able to provide assistance in all forms of planned giving, such as a charitable remainder trust or the gift of an insurance policy. For questions or to discuss a planned gift, please contact us at
