A walk through your neighborhood over the last year was evidence that Amazon had grown to the point of necessity for most of us. We'd venture to say you placed at least one order yourself. Students, faculty, and parents have leveraged the company to ease the stress, increase accessibility, and ensure their safety. Amazon is ubiquitous, and often the first stop when looking for products.
The Foundation for Pierce College needs your help. If you include links in your syllabus and other communication to purchase books, supplies, or other necessities, we'd like to encourage you to have a SMILE link. Nothing changes for our students. They will be able to complete their purchase as usual, but with the added benefit of supporting their fellow students by fundraising for our organization.
First, students, faculty, and friends who access THIS LINK will be directed to confirm SMILE purchases benefit The Foundation for Pierce College.
Any links you include in communications after that will only need to have smile in the URL for the organization to see the benefit. A small change in the information we already share can do a world of good for the students we support.
For example, below is a link to a Pierce College Los Angeles hat
By replacing www. with smile. a .05% donation will automatically be made to the foundation
Your support is greatly appreciated, and with your help, we can increase the number of lives we impact yearly. The board members at the Foundation for Pierce College appreciate all you have done over the last year to provide quality education to Pierce College students. We know that it hasn't been easy as you've had to take on more responsibilities as we moved to remote learning. Thank you from all of us for the sacrifices you've made and continue to make. This small change takes time, and we know you likely have very little, but this change can have a significant impact on our students.
Lastly, please consider doing your daily shopping from https://smile.amazon.com and encourage your students to do so as well.
Below is the information required when selecting our organization as your charity, please be mindful that there are two foundations, one in Washington, and ours, choose wisely.
