It is a simple and automatic way for you to support Foothill Christian School every time you shop. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service... with the added bonus of donating to our school’s charitable arm, FCS Educational Foundation.
How much money does AmazonSmile donate?
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible 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.
