UniversalGiving partners with Amazon on two separate programs. The first is a marketing program, where UniversalGiving is an Amazon Affiliate. Every time someone shops on Amazon using our link directly to Amazon, UniversalGiving receives between 5-10% of all shopping proceeds. And the more you shop, the more we receive, so use our link often from your computer and your mobile phone and share it with others. To read more about this Amazon Affiliate Program click here.
The second program is AmazonSmile, which is Amazon's Charitable Giving program. If you select UniversalGiving as your charitable organization, we will receive an additional 0.5% of all shopping proceeds. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon and it offers the same selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com.
