OLC and Amazon Smile
OLC has recently joined AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets you purchase products at the same prices as on Amazon.com. However, AmazonSmile donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organization you select. As a US-based, 501(c)(3) organization in good standing with the IRS, OLC is eligible to participate with AmazonSmile.
OLC plans to use the funds received to help provide development opportunities for professionals employed by institutions whose mission (in part) is to support students from underserved populations. So, now when you shop, you can help members of the OLC community.
How Does it Work?
You may use your same Amazon.com username and password to participate with AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, wish list, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same. This provides an opportunity for you to support the OLC community each time you shop.
You will not receive a tax deduction for participating with AmazonSmile. Instead, donations are made by the AmazonSmile Foundation to OLC.
Using OLC AmazonSmile Funds
OLC proposes to use all funds collected via AmazonSmile towards the support of individuals employed by institutions whose mission (in part) is to support students from underserved populations.
