Support your NIRSA family while you shop! Shopping with AmazonSmile benefits your NIRSA family no matter if your shopping cart is full of holiday gifts for your friends and family or if treating yourself just happens to coincide with Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals.

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way to support your NIRSA family every time you shop. When you use AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate a portion of the total cost of your purchase at no additional cost to you. It’s easy to set up:

  1. Visit and log in using your existing Amazon credentials (or create an account if you don’t have one).
  2. If you haven’t already chosen one, select the NIRSA Foundation as your designated charity. Now when you shop, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of your purchase to the NIRSA Foundation.
  3. Start shopping! Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. It’s the same Amazon you know and love with the extra smile-inducing knowledge that every purchase benefits your NIRSA family.

Please remember to bookmark and use it every time you shop. Purchases on the main Amazon site do not support the NIRSA Foundation. And help us spread the word! Share the link with your colleagues and campus rec communities. After you make a purchase, you’ll also see an easy option to share on Facebook or Twitter that you supported the NIRSA Foundation by shopping on AmazonSmile.

So go ahead: treat yourself to that extra pair of running shoes (you have to rotate them, obviously), get that Vitamix for your parents (they’re gonna love kale smoothies), or buy those Bluetooth headphones for your workout buddy (“Look What You Made Me Do,” you made me add 10 pounds to your squat bar)! And thank you for supporting the NIRSA Foundation this holiday season!
