Select IAAPA Foundation as Your AmazonSmile Charity

Support the future leaders of the global attractions industry next time you shop online on Amazon. Visit AmazonSmile and choose from the same items and prices found on Amazon.com.  AmazonSmile is just like using the Amazon. The only difference between using AmazonSmile and Amazon is that 0.5% of your eligible purchases will go to the charity of your choice — the IAAPA Foundation. After you change Amazon to AmazonSmile in your list of favorites, you’ll never know the difference, but the students that you help will.
