Amazon Smile is a way in which customers can support their favorite charitable organization at no extra cost whenever they shop with Amazon.

Customers who shop on will get the same Amazon they know and like, with the added bonus that AmazonSmile will donate a portion of the eligible purchase price to the charity of your choice.

Amazon Smile: The Easiest Money of a Non-profit Organization.

AmazonSmile assists a dance group for physically challenged children to raise funds for students’ dance shoes.

When shopping on AmazonSmile, customers will get millions of eligible items offered at the same low prices and convenient shopping experience as, with the added benefit that AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of the eligible purchase to the charitable.

Organizations choose customers, without any additional cost to them. Amazon and its customers have contributed $215 million to charity through AmazonSmile since 2013.

Requirements To Appear On Amazon Smile.

Your organization must meet these requirements to be listed on AmazonSmile. Your non-profit organization:

  • Qualified under Section 501(c)(3).
  • Should be a public charitable organization and not a private foundation.
  • Not supporting organizations, unless specifically identified as a Type I, Type II, or functionally integrated Type III subsidiary organization.
  • Headquartered in the United States (50 states and the District of Columbia).

Why My Organization Doesn’t Appear On Amazon Smile?

The things need to check at first:

  • Does your organization meet the requirements?
  • Is your organization listed on Guidestar?
  • Have you chosen to receive third-party donations?

Once your organization appears on Guidestar, you’ll automatically be selected for third-party donations from AmazonSmile.

Guidestar send updated information about non-profits to AmazonSmile at the end of the month, usually around the 22nd. If you’re a new organization that has recently opted to receive donations from our partners or have updated to your profile, you can expect your organization to appear on AmazonSmile in the first week of the month.

Discovering Non-profits By Their DBA On Amazon Smile.

If an organization has a DBA listed on their non-profit profile and it is not in the title/name of your organization, the DBA will not appear on AmazonSmile’s website.

However, if an organization is registered on and they search for their DBA, the organization will appear but will appear as the registered name or the name that appears on your organization’s profile page. That’s what will happen when supporters search for your organization’s DBA name.
