Use Amazon Smile for Back to School Shopping

August 14th, 2018


It’s that time of year again! Summer is coming to an end and you’re getting ready to send the kids back to school. Unfortunately, some kids can only enjoy simple services, such as electricity and air conditioning, when they are in the classroom. More than half of the households supported by Dollar Energy Fund have children under the age of 18. Luckily, you have the opportunity to help your neighbors in need when you shop for back-to-school supplies.

By supporting Dollar Energy Fund through Amazon Smile, not only will you teach your kids the value of giving, but you will also help a family afford basic utility service this season. Sign up by visiting and select Dollar Energy Fund as your charity. Then, shop on Amazon through the link.

Amazon Smile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as The difference is that when you shop on Amazon Smile, the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. There is no additional cost to you!

As always, all funds received by Dollar Energy Fund will be matched dollar for dollar by our partnering utility companies. This is a great way to support our Hardship Program and help the thousands of families who risk facing the rest of the year without basic utility service.

Tell your friends and family to help us spread the word about Amazon Smile!
