Did you know you can support Lewis & Clark just by shopping on Amazon? AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice.

When you begin using Amazon Smile, your Amazon shopping cart, wish lists, and other account settings will carry over.

Sign up and begin shopping and donating today:
  1. Go to AmazonSmile.com
  2. Log in to your Amazon account. (If you don’t have an Amazon account, it’s free and easy to create one.)
  3. Type “Lewis & Clark College” after the prompt to pick your own charitable organization

Once you’ve selected Lewis & Clark College, just remember to go to AmazonSmile.com instead of Amazon.com whenever you’re ready to shop. Amazon will remember your selection, and every eligible purchase will result in a donation.

If you already use AmazonSmile, you can change your charity to Lewis & Clark College at any time. To change your charity, sign in to smile.amazon.com on your desktop or mobile phone browser and simply select “Your AmazonSmile” under “Your Account.”
