Amazon SMILE Foundation

What is AmazonSmile?

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support our wonderful school every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to David Fairchild Elementary

How much of my purchase does Amazon donate?

The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. From time to time, we may offer special, limited time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organizations. Special terms and restrictions may apply. Please see the relevant promotion for complete details.

How Does it Work?

The entire shopping experience is the same and most products available on are available at Amazon Smile.

The screen will look slightly different depending on whether you’re already signed in to Amazon. If you’re already signed in, you’ll see a screen like the one below. Simply search for “Fairchild Elementary School PTA” or the charity of your choice and proceed to step 3.

If you’re not signed in, enter your email and password. Then proceed to step 3.

3. Select “Fairchild Elementary School PTA.”

Once selected, you will receive an email confirmation and you can begin shopping.

4. Begin shopping!

Once you’ve selected your charity everything else functions the same. Shop for your favorite products or the perfect gift. Most products are eligible on Amazon Smile–if not, you’ll be notified. You can checkout normally as well. No extra cost is passed onto you–Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to David Fairchild Elementary!

5. Share with your friends

After you’ve successfully completed a purchase on Amazon Smile you can share the news with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or via email. This option appears on the confirmation page after your order is complete.
