    Thank you so much for opening your heart to the important work EMPACT is doing in communities around the world!  We have several ways you can support our mission!

    Make a cash contribution


    Perhaps the fastest way to support our mission is through a simple monetary donation.  EMPACT Northwest is a 100% donor supported organization and a 501(c)3 non-profit.  That means that when you donate, it’s 100% tax deductible!

    But Wait! …Now you can help support EMPACT Northwest without spending one extra dime!


    By working with partners in the nonprofit and corporate worlds, we’ve come up with a way for you to financially support EMPACT without spending any more than you already do in your daily shopping.

    All you have to do is sign up through one or more of the participating retailers or organizations (listed below) and shop like you normally would.  A percentage of whatever you spend, from 0.5% to 7% will be set aside by the retailer and donated to EMPACT Northwest.

    Seem to good to be true?  The reason it works is that each retailer tries to find ways to provide charitable donations, either out of a spirit of philanthropy or to capitalize on the tax benefits.  Rather than having full time personnel doing nothing but manage giving programs, these savvy retailers have found a way to allow their customers to make the decision for them. You get the opportunity to make a statement with your purchases, and EMPACT receives a generous monthly donation!

    How does it work? When you first visit AmazonSmile, you’ll be prompted to select a charitable organization, like EMPACT Northwest.  In order to browse or shop at AmazonSmile, you must first select this charitable organization.  After that, just shop at the AmazonSmile site and 0.5% of all of your purchases will go directly to EMPACT Northwest.  And it doesn’t cost you anything!

    Wait, there’s more!! From now through 3/31/2014, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate an extra $5 for each customer who makes an eligible purchase at smile.amazon.com in support of Empact Northwest. This is in addition to the regular donation of 0.5% of the purchase price. Up to $1,000,000 extra will be donated to eligible charities as a result of this promotion! Get started today!
