Fundraising - Amazon
 
To use the affiliate code for Samish Woods while shopping on Amazon, use the link below to get to Amazon before placing any items in your cart.  After your order ships, Samish Woods will be credited with a 4%-7% referral fee, depending on the number of orders that occur during each month (7 or more items increases the rate to 6%, 31 or more to 6.5% and higher if over 110 items).  Most items on Amazon qualify, even third-party items, although the fee is capped at $25 on certain high value items, such as computers, and held at 4% for some categories, such as electronics.  Interestingly, an Amazon gift card always has a 6% referral fee and anything bought with gift card funds can also generate a referral fee, so it's possible to get up to a 13% credit to Samish Woods for a single item.

Note that you will get no indication that your order is getting credited to Samish Woods.  Also if you have installed a toolbar to automate donating your online purchasing referral fees, like OneCause, FreeCause, or others, it will most likely "hijack" the referral fee to whatever other cause you have set up in the toolbar, even if you follow this Samish Woods link.  And typically, those toolbar sites pass along a much smaller referral fee than they get from Amazon or other online retailers.
 
Note on Privacy:  In the earnings report from Amazon we will see each specific item that was purchased using this affiliate code, and how much it cost, but there is no identifying user information associated with the purchase, and the school can't tell who bought what.
