The Christmas season is a time when we celebrate God’s love for us by sharing gifts with those we love most.

And with AmazonSmile, you can find something special for everyone on your list and support Saint Paul School of Theology at the same time!

AmazonSmile gives you access to the same low prices, vast selection and convenience you already enjoy when shopping on Amazon — while sharing a portion of your purchase with a favorite charitable organization every time you shop.

How Does AmazonSmile Work?

It’s really easy.

For starters, you can use your existing Amazon account; you don’t have to create a new one! Your shopping cart, wish list, wedding or baby gift registry and all other account settings will stay the same.

You’ll see “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on product detail pages for the tens of millions of eligible items available on Amazon. Products not eligible include recurring subscribe and save purchases, and subscription renewals.

How Can You Use AmazonSmile?

If you’d like for AmazonSmile to donate a portion of your purchases to Saint Paul, here’s how to get started:

  • Visit smile.amazon.com
  • Log into your Amazon account if not already logged in
  • On the right-hand side of the screen, type “Saint Paul School of Theology” into the search box
  • Start shopping!

AmazonSmile even lets you track the donations you generate while you shop — so you can see how much Saint Paul receives from your purchases!

How Does AmazonSmile Benefit Saint Paul?

Proceeds from your AmazonSmile purchases will benefit the Saint Paul Annual/Seminary Fund.

Gifts to this fund support our mission to prepare students for innovative, creative ministry and have a direct, positive impact on our students’ everyday lives.

Annual Fund gifts benefit our students in a number of ways:

  • Technology improvements
  • Library improvements
  • Campus renovations
  • Student activities such as Café Mondays and Lecture Series
  • Assist with student aid and all other ongoing needs

During this special time of year, we’d like to send a big “thank you” to all of our alumni and donors for your love and generosity this year and every year.

And we wish all of you and those you love a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year in 2019!
