Have you heard about the Amazon Smile charity donation program? It’s a simple, free way to give and help Phoenix Children’s Hospital just by shopping online. When you shop at smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com, you’ll find the same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience—but with the added benefit of supporting children, families and providers in need.

How can I donate through AmazonSmile?

  1. Visit smile.amazon.com on your desktop.
    • If you’re not already an AmazonSmile participant, follow the prompts and select Phoenix Children’s Hospital as your supported charitable organization.
    • If you’re already an AmazonSmile participant, AmazonSmile will ask you if you would like to change your charity to Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

2. Shop on smile.amazon.com (instead of amazon.com) every time you want to make an Amazon purchase.

The more you shop, the more AmazonSmile foundation will donate and help provide the very best health care to children and their families, at no cost to you or to Phoenix Children’s Hospital.

How does AmazonSmile work?

Through AmazonSmile, a 501(c)(3) private foundation, Amazon makes charitable donations to us based on how much you spend on eligible items. (Note that because the AmazonSmile Foundation is making the donations, you’re not able to take a tax deduction.)

How much does AmazonSmile donate?

After you’ve chosen Phoenix Children’s Hospital as your charitable organization, AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price for all of your eligible purchases on Amazon. All you need to do is shop—when you check out from your AmazonSmile shopping cart, the donation will be made at no extra cost to you. (To find out if the items you’re buying will help you contribute, look for “Eligible for AmazonSmile donations” on each product’s detail page.)

When you shop through AmazonSmile, you help meet the most immediate needs at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. You’re enabling us to launch critical new programs, purchase essential equipment, conduct cutting-edge research, provide charitable care and much more.

Does AmazonSmile work on the Amazon app?

If you prefer to shop from your phone, you can use the Amazon app to make your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. Open the app, go to Settings, and tap “AmazonSmile.” The on-screen instructions will walk you through turning AmazonSmile on. (You’ll be prompted twice a year to renew AmazonSmile in your app to keep it activated.)

How do I find out how much my AmazonSmile charity donations have helped?

Click “Your AmazonSmile Impact” for more details, including the total AmazonSmile has donated to the hospital and to charities worldwide.
