Fundraising

Donate while shopping

You can always generate donations for Carol Rae Ranch PTSO by shopping at smile.amazon.com. AmazonSmile is a free program and you’ll find the same low prices, vast selection, and convenient shipping options as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that AmazonSmile Foundation will donate a portion of eligible purchases to CRRE PTSO. The best part is if you already have an existing Amazon.com account, you don’t create a new account to support us.

How do I sign up? On your first visit to AmazonSmile smile.amazon.com, select “Carol Rae Ranch PTSO” or “82-2474104” as your charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping.   Afterwards, every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation.

How do I update if I’ve previously selected a different organization? There are two options available to change your charity after you sign in to smile.amazon.com on your desktop or mobile phone browser.

  1. On the left side of the page, under the search bar, hover over “Supporting: (your charity)” > select the “Change” link to the right of your current charity > search for “Carol Rae Ranch PTSO” or “82-2474104″and select us.
  2. Go to Accounts & Lists (right side near “your cart”) > select Your Account > scroll down to Other Programs box > select “Change your Charity”  > search for “Carol Rae Ranch PTSO” or “82-2474104″and select us.

Plus, AmazonSmile is now available in the Amazon Shopping App to all AmazonSmile customers using supported Android devices.

  1. Open the Amazon Shopping App on your Android device.
  2. View Settings and select AmazonSmile.
  3. Follow the instructions in the Amazon Shopping App to complete the process.
