AmazonSmile: Automated mini-donations to our
John F Kennedy Middle PTA (Cupertino, CA)

Hello wonderful Kennedy families!

Every time you start your online shopping at smile.amazon.com (instead of at www.amazon.com), AmazonSmile donates 0.5% of the eligible sale to the charity of your choice, which you can select to be your PTA!  While 50 cents of every $100 of eligible purchases may seem like a mini-amount, every little bit helps. In recent years, this program has brought in approximately $300 per year to the PTA.  Let’s see if we can increase this through more families participating 🙂

Please remember, AmazonSmile doesn’t replace our need to ask families to continue generously donating directly, so please see our PTA Donate! link on the left of this page if you haven’t made your annual donation yet.

On your PC: If you plan to use AmazonSmile, please go to smile.amazon.com and select John F Kennedy Middle PTA (Cupertino, CA) as your charitable organization.  After that, you’ll need to start your future shopping on your PC at smile.amazon.com (not at amazon.com).  It’s easy to forget to go to smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com, so you might want to bookmark smile.amazon.com or make a habit of typing the URL “sm…” instead of “am…” when you start shopping on your PC.

On your Phone: After you’ve set the John F Kennedy Middle PTA (Cupertino, CA) as your charity, on your phone you can set AmazonSmile as the default in your Amazon app.

While shopping AmazonSmile on a PC, you’ll know you’re using AmazonSmile because of the AmazonSmile logo at the top of your shopping page, similar to the one below.  You’ll also see the following text under the search bar on your shopping page: Supporting: John F Kennedy Middle PTA.  Finally, when you checkout, you’ll see indicators, for example the tab at the top of your checkout page will read “AmazonSmile Checkout”, and under the Order Summary you’ll see “Supporting: John F Kennedy Middle PTA.”  Remember to renew your charity regularly per Amazon’s rules.
