On Black Friday, keep FIRE and AmazonSmile in mind

By November 23, 2018

The holidays are upon us, which means celebrating friends, family, food, and tons of shopping. It’s also a time to give back by supporting the causes you care deeply about. Luckily, giving back is easier than ever with AmazonSmile.

Purchases you make this busy shopping weekend—and throughout the holiday season—through Amazon.com’s AmazonSmile Program can also support FIRE.

All you have to do is start your gift search from smile.amazon.com, search for the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, and select us as your charity of choice. Amazon will then donate 0.5 percent of your purchase price to FIRE at absolutely no cost to you. Your charitable preferences will also be saved on your AmazonSmile profile, easily allowing you to continue to support FIRE throughout the year. However, you must start from smile.amazon.com each time you shop in order for your purchase to include a donation to FIRE.

AmazonSmile is a quick and easy way to support a worthy cause at absolutely no cost to you. FIRE can benefit from your online shopping, with no time, energy, or money needed on your part!

This holiday season, you can spread cheer to your loved ones, while also advancing the rights of millions of students and faculty members across the country. The situation on our campuses have reached their boiling points, which means there’s been no shortage of work for FIRE to do. Every dollar truly does help keep us going, and in turn, helps the students and professors who need our help.

You can also support FIRE at any time of year using your Amazon account through Amazon Payments, or directly through our secure online donation form. Remember, all gifts to FIRE are 100 percent tax-deductible, but you must donate by midnight on Dec. 31 to secure your 2018 charitable deduction.

Thank you for considering FIRE during the giving season, and for all your help advancing liberty on campuses nationwide!
