Donate to the Y by buying on AmazonSmile!


If you’re like most of us today, a good part of your shopping is online, and why not? Shopping from your computer, phone, or tablet is easier than ever, and you can find the best deals without using up a tank of gasoline.

What some may not know is that every time you make a purchase on Amazon, you can donate money to the Riverdale Y without any additional cost or effort!  Amazon has a service called Amazon Smile, which donates a portion of your purchase to the charitable organization of your choice!

Operated by Amazon, and having the same products, prices, and shopping features as its parent company, when you shop on AmazonSmile, the foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice! Every item available for purchase on Amazon is also available on AmazonSmile at the same price. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages.

When you visit AmazonSmile, you’ll be asked to select a charity to receive your donations. Simply enter “Young Men’s And Young Women’s Hebrew Association Of The Bronx”, and you’ll be registered into the Smile charitable program. Every time you make a purchase of an eligible item, a portion of your purchase will be donated to the Riverdale Y!

That’s all there is to it! It costs you nothing, and you will have done a favor for your favorite organization!

Remember to log in at to make your purchases. If we all do this, we can make a difference for the Y.
