Support Your Class
There are two ways we can support the class of 1966: class dues (described at the bottom of this page) and Amazon.com purchases through Amazon's charitable gift program AmazonSmile, accessed by clicking the AmazonSmile button at the bottom right side of the home page or on this page.
What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization (Wellesley College Alumnae Class of 1966!) every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same prices, selection and shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to your favorite charitable organization (Wellesley College Alumnae Class of 1966!).
How do I shop at AmazonSmile?
To shop at AmazonSmile simply go to smile.amazon.com from the web browser on your computer or mobile device. You may also want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com to make it even easier to return and start your shopping at AmazonSmile.
Which products on AmazonSmile are eligible for charitable donations?
Every item available for purchase on www.amazon.com is also available on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) at the same price. Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked "Eligible for AmazonSmile donation" on their product detail pages.
Can I use my existing Amazon.com account on AmazonSmile?
Yes, you use the same account on Amazon.com and AmazonSmile. Your shopping cart, Wish List, wedding or baby registry, and other account settings are also the same.
How do I select a charitable organization to support when shopping on AmazonSmile?
On your first visit to AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), you need to select a charitable organization (Wellesley College Alumnae Class of 1966!) to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. AmazonSmile will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation.
Can I change my charity? I already use AmazonSmile to support another charity.
Yes, you can change your charity any time. Your AmazonSmile purchases after the change count towards your newly selected charity. To change your charity, sign in to smile.amazon.com on your desktop or mobile phone browser and simply select “Change your Charity” in “Your Account.”
How much of my purchase does Amazon donate?
The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible AmazonSmile purchases. The purchase price is the amount paid for the item minus any rebates and excluding shipping & handling, gift-wrapping fees, taxes, or service charges.
The income from the dues of lifetime class members is our principal source of revenue. This revenue is used for class officers' meetings, primarily for planning reunions. The more we have in our treasury, the more we can do. Class dues are tax deductible.
If you're a lifetime member, your name is listed in Life Members of the Class of 1966. If not, by all means send in your lifetime dues--$75. Pay online by following the instructions below. (If you would prefer to send a check to our class treasurer, click here for her contact information.)
