Support Facing History When You Shop on Amazon!

Posted by Julia Rappaport on August 22, 2014

If you already shop on Amazon—or if you’re stocking up on school supplies, buying new reads, or looking for the perfect gift—we invite you to support Facing History and Ourselves by shopping through AmazonSmile.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3:

1. Go to and sign in with your Amazon account.

2. Type Facing History and Ourselves National Foundation, Inc. in the charity search box and select us as your charity.

3. Shop Amazon and donate at the same time!

AmazonSmile will remember your selection. When you purchase items with "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” in their product descriptions, Amazon will give .05% of the price directly to Facing History.

It’s simple to do, but this small action will make a big impact on the three million (and counting) students and we reach each year.

What is AmazonSmile?

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 our customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.
