Great News from the SWCD Education Foundation....

We have discovered a new way for you to donate to the SWCD Education Foundation - by shopping Amazon. 


1. If you shop Amazon, the only simple change is you have to logon to smile.amazon.com. The login will be the same as if you were logging on to amazon.com. 

2. Once you login to smile.amazon.com, you may select the charitable organization. You can make it easier to find ours by doing a search of Whiteside County and 

    selecting it from the list of organizations. 

3. Once you have your charitable organization chosen, shop as you normally would, if the item is eligible it will indicate "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation" under 

    the item. 

4. After you make your purchase and log out, amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to our organization. 


Please click this link to get started, https://smile.amazon.com/ch/36-4371645.

Thank you and happy shopping.....
