Make CSEA Foundation a beneficiary of your purchases through AmazonSmile: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/94-2985502. It’s simple!  All you need to do is…

Shop at AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) instead of regular Amazon (amazon.com).

Your account is the same.  On your first visit to AmazonSmile, select California State Employees Association Foundation as your beneficiary or use this direct link: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/94-2985502.

When making purchases through AmazonSmile, Amazon donates 0.5% of your purchase price to California State Employees Association Foundation. That does not sound much, but Amazon reports that as of October 2018, AmazonSmile purchases had resulted in $105,515,619.04 being paid to beneficiary organizations!
