Raise Money For The Temple With AMAZON

Amazon LogoFundraising has never been easier, as you can shop at Amazon.com, your favorite online store, and have 4% of every purchase be directed to Congregation Beth Yam. Just click on the Amazon logo on the left and when you get to the Amazon site, you may bookmark it or add it to your favorites list. Then use the bookmark or favorite whenever you buy something from Amazon. If you don’t use bookmarks or favorites, just go to this CBY homepage and click on the Amazon logo. That’s all you need to do.

It works just like the regular Amazon, but you have an opportunity to designate a charity of your choice to receive a 0.5% rebate payment of the cost of your purchases. We encourage you to select Congregation Beth Yam as your designated charity. When you click on the Amazon logo on our CBY homepage, you will automatically be taken to the Amazon Smile web site. You may add this site to your favorites or bookmark it. Amazon Smile will still pay CBY an average of 4% of your purchase as part of the Amazon Associates program.
