AMAZON SMILE

Support the JCC Every Time You Shop with Amazon Smile!

Do you use Amazon for your online shopping? Perhaps the correct question is do you know anyone who does NOT use Amazon for their online shopping? Now, every time you make a purchase on Amazon.com and designate the Minnesota JCC as your charity of choice, Amazon will donate a small portion of your purchase back to us. Here’s how it works:

Go to www.smile.amazon.com to log in or create an account:

  • You may choose to download Amazon Smile so that you will go directly there when you shop

That’s it! Once you have selected the JCC as the charity of your choice, .5% of each purchase you make will come back to us. Imagine how quickly this will add up as more and more members, employees, and friends sign up.
