Give with a smile

Now you can support Women of the ELCA with an even sweeter smile – an AmazonSmile, that is.

AmazonSmile is a simple, automatic way for you to support Women of the ELCA every time you shop at Amazon.com, at no cost to you. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate .5 percent of what you spend at Amazon to the churchwide women’s organization.

Your privacy is protected – Women of the ELCA is never informed of your purchases, the amount you spend, or even that it’s you who’s supporting Women of the ELCA through AmazonSmile. It couldn’t be easier.

“We know how much our women love to read, and how much they love supporting Women of the ELCA,” said Audrey Riley, director for stewardship and development for Women of the ELCA, “so this is a perfect fit! I can’t wait to see how enthusiastically women will jump on this opportunity to do two of their favorite things at once – with AmazonSmile.”
