Get on the bandwagon, support UofL through Amazon Smile

May want to get on board. 

For a couple of years now, I have been participating in the Amazon Smile program, in which a portion of the proceeds go a consumer’s favorite charity. My choice, of course, was the University of Louisville Foundation. 

I hadn’t paid much attention to the details, just pleased to see more money going to UofL. You know, wanting to help the alma mater in any way possible, especially during the turmoil of the past couple of years.

An Open Records Request to the University of Louisville was somewhat disappointing, indicating that UofL had only received $73.96 from the program over the last three academic years. Resulting from $14,792 in sales to UofL supporters.

The percentage of Amazon’s gift is .05% of each sale. For example, .05% is only half a penny, a nickel for ever $100 in purchase, or fifty cents from a purchase of $1,000. Even so UofL should be getting much more from the program.

Go to your Amazon account and make the UofL Foundation your charity. When you’re ready to buy, just sign into smile.amazon.com, make your purchase, and Amazon will come through with a donation. What could be easier?
