SNF Teams-Up with AmazonSmile

Just like Leonardo da Vinci’s famous portrait of Mona Lisa, one way to keep smiling and support the School Nutrition Foundation (SNF), is by visiting AmazonSmile, identify SNF as your charity, and every time you make a purchase of “eligible products” from the e-commerce company, they will donate 0.5% of the price of the goods you buy to SNF. AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way to support SNF every time you shop and at no cost to you!

AmazonSmile is a great way to support SNF. Monies raised are used by SNF to provide professional development and conference scholarships, in addition to help fund important programs, such as Breakfast in the Classroom, Afterschool Meals/Supper Programs, School Nutrition as Hubs, SCrAP (School Cafeteria Discards Assessment Project) and the Celebration of School Nutrition Heroes.

How does AmazonSmile work? Simply go to smile.amazon.com. Under “Pick Your Own Charitable Organization,” type in School Nutrition Foundation and hit Search. The SNF box and logo will now show up and just click that as your charity. Amazon will remember your section and then every “eligible purchase” you make from smile.amazon.com, it will result in a donation.

What Amazon products are eligible for donations and how do you know if they are? Amazon lists tens of millions of products as eligible for donations. Items will be clearly marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail page.

TEXT2GIVE

Just in time for ANC! You can make your gift to the 2017 Annual Fund from your iPhone, iPad or other mobile device. Just text SNF to 243725 to donate. Or give online at TEXT2GIVE. You will be making payment via your credit card and email receipts will be available. Thank you for supporting the School Nutrition Foundation. Remember, your gift can help your state qualify for dollars back for scholarships!

Now, every time you are browsing at an item on Amazon, a tag line saying, “Supporting: School Nutrition Foundation” will now appear on the top left hand side of the upper black masthead. If you pull that box down, it will show the total amount of money donated by you as of that day and the total amount of charity money Amazon has distributed.

You can also use AmazonSmile from your Amazon.com account, which will automatically add SNF to your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry or other Amazon account settings. However, please keep in mind, donations made by the AmazonSmile Foundation are not tax deductible by you. Amazon defines the purchase price of which 0.5% is donated to SNF, as the amount paid for the item minus any rebates, and excluding shipping and handling, gift-wrapping, taxes and service charges.

In addition to registering SNF for Amazon Smile, the Foundation is also now registered with American Express. American Express cardmembers can give using their American Express card and they can also redeem points to make a donation!
