How to Support Gutenberg When You Shop

You can give to Gutenberg without donating your own funds. Here are two great ways:

AmazonSmile

eScripAmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support Gutenberg College every time you shop—at no cost to you.

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets you enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The shopping experience is identical. You use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, wish list, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the eligible charitable organization of your choice. 100% of the donation amount generated from your eligible purchase will be donated, and there is no cost to the charitable organization or to you.

If you shop on smile.amazon.com using an internet browser on your desktop or laptop computer, your mobile phone, or your tablet, then your purchases of eligible products (tens of millions of them marked “eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on the detail pages) will result in donations. Purchases that are not made using an internet browser (for instance, using the Amazon Shopping App, Kindle Store, FireTV, Amazon Dash, or Amazon Echo) are not currently eligible for donations. Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are also not currently eligible. The donation amounts generated by your purchases are combined with the donation amounts from all other customers who selected the same registered charitable organization, and each quarter the AmazonSmile Foundation gives them to the organization by electronic funds transfer.

On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), before you begin shopping, select Gutenberg College to receive donations from eligible purchases. AmazonSmile will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation. Go to smile.amazon.com for more details about this great way to support Gutenberg College.

The eScrip Program

eScripThe eScrip fundraising program coordinates with local and online merchants to help non-profit organizations. Up to 8% of what you spend on groceries, clothing, airline tickets, dining-out, and other items can be donated to Gutenberg.

For example, if you shop at Market of Choice, the store will donate 2% to 4% of the amount you spend on your monthly purchases. The larger your grocery bill, the higher the percentage that the store will donate.

For more information and to participate, go to www.escrip.com, where you can register to participate in eScrip by selecting the “Sign Up!” button. The website will take you through a few simple steps to register. When you are asked to “Select your school or nonprofit,” simply type “Gutenberg College.”

On the website, you will also find a list of participating local merchants or be able to shop online.

The eScrip program is administered by Electronic Scrip, Inc. (ESI), a registered corporation in the State of California. If you have questions about privacy and security, please read ESI’s privacy statement on the eScrip website.
