What is the Shop with Shutterfly program?

SchoolForce is excited to announce a NEW opportunity with Shutterfly.  Shutterfly will donate 13% of all sales made through our storefront page to SchoolForce without any cost to you. This is a new year round program for SchoolForce. This is not limited to the school community, so please share the SchoolForce Shutterfly link (http://schoolforce.shutterflystorefront.com/) with family, friends, colleagues, etc.

What is Amazon Associates?

As a a nonprofit registered for Amazon Associates, SchoolForce earns ~3-14% in advertising fees by sending online traffic from the SchoolForce website to Amazon.com.  When purchases are then made, SchoolForce earns money on for Qualifying Purchases via the Associates program. Most advertising fees are calculated as a percentage of Qualifying Revenues based on the types of products and services purchased.  Amazon Associates fees have typically averaged 5-7% of total purchase for SchoolForce in the past five years.
Amazon Associates fees are summarized here:  https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/help/operating/advertisingfees

I’ve heard about AmazonSmile recently.

How is it different than the Amazon Associates program?

The AmazonSmile program was started in 2014.  SchoolForce receives donations from the AmazonSmile Foundation equal to 0.5% of the purchase price of all eligible items purchased on AmazonSmile for customers who have selected SchoolForce as their charity to support. AmazonSmile customers have the option of making all their Amazon purchases via AmazonSmile to provide an ongoing benefit to SchoolForce.  The return with AmazonSmile is much lower than with the Amazon Associate program, but it does not require the use of a specific link with the Associates program.  SchoolForce has signed up for both the AmazonSmile and the Amazon Associates programs.

How much has SchoolForce earned from Amazon Associates?

SchoolForce has earned almost $40,000 from the Amazon Associates program in the past 5 years. But earning can increase if we get the word out to more friends and family. Be sure to bookmark the Amazon Associates link (http://www.amazon.com/?_encoding=UTF8&tag=schoforc02-20) and use the link each time you shop at Amazon. It’s free money for SchoolForce and Belmont-Redwood Shores schools!
