What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal.-Albert Pike
It is a way that students, staff, faculty, alumni, and friends of the College can have a small percentage of what they pay for their purchases on Amazon to a not-for-profit organization like NYCC. It costs nothing extra for the buyer/customer, Amazon just takes less money themselves and directs that small percentage to help not-for-profit organizations, like NYCC
When first visiting AmazonSmile at the link below, friends of NYCC are prompted to select a charitable organization. Just type in "New York Chiropractic College" and select it as the designated charitable organization. From then on, particpants in this program simply do their shopping on Amazon as they normally would. Just remember to use the AmazonSmile address instead of the usual Amazon web address. For eligible purchases at AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the customer's selected charitable organization.
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 Amazon customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.
Each quarter, the AmazonSmile Foundation makes donations to eligible charitable organizations by electronic funds transfer. The more friends of the College shop with AmazonSmile, the more donations will be transferred to NYCC.
