Shop with Amazon and Donate Money to the San Joaquin Valley Quilt Guild!!!

Many of us love to shop online, and love to shop at Amazon. Did you know that Amazon will give a percentage of your purchase to SJVQG, and it costs you nothing extra. The only thing you need to do is sign into Amazon through the charity portal, Amazon Smiles, and designate the San Joaquin Valley Quilt Guild as the charity you want to donate to. Then, whenever you shop on Amazon, sign into their charitable giving site (Amazon Smiles) and shop like normal.

  • log onto Amazon at or just click on this link
  • Use your regular Amazon Username and password
  • Select your charity … If you have never used Smiles, you will be taken to a screen that asks which charity you want to support.
  • San Joaquin Valley Quilt Guild is how we are listed…

Shop, and .5% of your purchase will go to SJVQG. They deposit money into our bank account every three months. It’s a small percentage for one purchase, but it really adds up. The only requirement, you start your shopping at Amazon Smiles. If you like to shop on your phone, Amazon Smiles works there too.

You can bookmark Amazon Smiles on your Favorites bar so shopping is one click away!

How do I select a charitable organization to support with AmazonSmile?

On your first visit to AmazonSmile, you will be prompted to select a charitable organization to receive donations from your future eligible AmazonSmile purchases. We will remember your selected charity whenever you shop at or with AmazonSmile activated in the Amazon Shopping app, and then every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will result in a donation for your selected charity. AmazonSmile will occasionally contact you about donation amounts disbursed to your chosen charity or about the program.

Can I change my charity?

Yes, you can change your charity at any time. Simply visit, or tap “AmazonSmile” within the Settings menu in the Amazon Shopping app on your phone and select “Change your charity”. Your AmazonSmile purchases made after changing your charity will count towards your newly selected charity.
