If you use Amazon.com, your purchases can help support the Schaumburg Amateur Radio Club (SARC).
Register your account with ‘smile.amazon.com’ and Amazon will contribute ½ of 1 percent of your eligible purchases to any single 501C organization you choose. Participation doesn’t increase your purchase price. SARC is registered with ‘smile.amazon.com’.
The process is simple: Log into ‘smile.amazon.com’. The landing page will direct you to where you can select the 501C you want. Type “Schaumburg Amateur Radio Club” in the search box. A couple of clicks later, you’re registered. You don’t have to change your login or password. Pretty painless.
The money is directed to the bank account of the registered 501C on a regular basis via PayPal. It’s a one way street – deductions cannot be made by Amazon from the PayPal account, so it’s pretty safe.
You do have to remember to log in via ‘smile.amazon.com’; otherwise Amazon won’t recognize your purchases as eligible.
I went through the process, and now my purchases help support SARC. Fun way to support the club.
