Greetings unto the Populace of the SCA

In July of 2014, the SCA launched its partnership with the Amazon Smile program. This launch was worldwide and through your participation in the program, we have had some very good results.

As of our first anniversary in July 2015, the Amazon Smile program donated $2,234.89 to SCA Inc. As of our second year anniversary in July of 2016, the Amazon Smile program has donated an additional $1,746.47 to SCA Inc.

It is your participation in this partnership that has made it a success. For those of you already participating, we send you a big thank you. We appreciate your continued support of this partnership and SCA Inc.

For those who haven’t heard of the Amazon Smile program, here is the original announcement:

Many of us shop at Amazon for a wide range of products.  Did you know that the SCA can benefit from each purchase you make at no additional charge to you?

Here’s how:  Go to  Sign into your account and a “pop up” page will appear. On the right side of the page, at the bottom is a “search” window.  Type in: Society for Creative Anachronism and click the search button.  Click on the top one and you are done.  Your donations will be automatic for any purchase within the Amazon Smile program (which is most merchandise). You can also use the following link.

Amazon donates 0.5% of each purchase to the non-profit organizations of your choice and the Society for Creative Anachronism is one of those organizations.  This is a painless way to support our organization.  These donations will be deposited quarterly from the AmazonSmile Foundation into a separate SCA corporate account dedicated for these donations.

What is the AmazonSmile Foundation?

The AmazonSmile Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation created by Amazon to administer the AmazonSmile program. All donation amounts generated by the AmazonSmile program are remitted to the AmazonSmile Foundation. In turn, the AmazonSmile Foundation donates those amounts to the charitable organizations selected by our customers. Amazon pays all expenses of the AmazonSmile Foundation; they are not deducted from the donation amounts generated by purchases on AmazonSmile.

Yours in Service,

John Fulton

President, SCA Inc.
