Epilogos Charities Inc. is registered with The AmazonSmile Foundation as one of their charities. This foundation is affiliated with Amazon, the online company where you can buy just about anything you need. So, when you make a purchase on their special website, their foundation donates a portion (typically a half percent - .05%) of your purchase price to Epilogos Charities Inc. You don’t have to do anything once you register for this free program.
How Does AmazonSmile Work?
Amazon has set up a special website smile.amazon.com which ‘mirrors’ the main amazon.com website. AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support Epilogos every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as you would on Amazon.com, with the added bonus that the AmazonSmile Foundation makes a donation to Epilogos Charities Inc.

What products are eligible for charitable donations?
Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages.
Can you use your existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile?
Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, etc, and other account settings are also the same.
How much of your purchase does Amazon donate?
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges. From time to time, Amazon may offer special, limited time promotions that increase the donation amount on one or more products or services or provide for additional donations to charitable organizations. Special terms and restrictions may apply. Donations are made to Epilogos Charities Inc. by the AmazonSmile Foundation and are not tax deductible by you.
