AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support First United Methodist Church, Long Beach, when you shop at Amazon at no cost to you. When you shop through, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as, with the added benefit that Amazon will donate 0.5% of your eligible purchases to FUMCLB.
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.
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. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible.
You use your existing Amazon account to shop with Amazon Smile.
Each quarter, the AmazonSmile Foundation will distribute to our Church the funds that represent eligible purchases made by our members. Donations will be transferred by electronic funds transfer to a Church account approximately 45 days after the end of each calendar quarter.
