Shop through AmazonSmile to support the APHF and youth scholarships

In 2014, Amazon.com had $88.99 billion in sales revenue. It’s difficult to find an online shopper who has not utilized Amazon and their incredible selection of products.

Now, APHA members can help support the American Paint Horse Foundation just by shopping where they’re already finding the best deals—Amazon.com—via AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way to support the American Paint Horse Foundation every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization—the American Paint Horse Foundation.

All donations that come in to the APHF via this program will be earmarked for youth scholarships, which have helped make college affordable for more than 300 young riders over the last 25 years.

To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, wish list, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same. You just log in via the AmazonSmile portal rather than Amazon.com. Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages.

On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you need to select the American Paint Horse Foundation as the charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation.

The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5 percent of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. Please note that donations are made by the AmazonSmile Foundation and are not tax deductible.

AmazonSmile is a painless way to make a donation, so log in to smile.amazon.com today and help the American Paint Horse Foundation in its mission to assist in the higher education of Paint Horse youth. Spread the word and give the APHF something to SMILE about.
