Everyday Ways to Give

Amazon Smile

When you register with Amazon smile and shop through the AmazonSmile site (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers.

  1. Go to https://smile.amazon.com/ch/91-1154984 (bookmark this site!)
  2. Log in with your Amazon account information (or create an account)

    Why is Tacoma listed as our city? The Amazon Smile program gets their information about eligible charities from Washington Secretary of State. The address shown on file is the address for our state PTA (WSPTA). They are our registered agent with the IRS and the Washington Secretary of State.
