ONGOING FUNDRAISERS

We’re excited to announce a new fundraiser in which everyone can participate!

When ordering items from Amazon, use Amazon Smile which offers the exact same shopping experience as Amazon or Amazon Prime. The only difference is that when you use Amazon Smile, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the cost of qualifying purchases to the non-profit organization of your choice – with no additional charge to you.

  • When signing up for Amazon Smile, click on our Society’s unique link https://smile.amazon.com/ch/23-7433649
  • You will be taken to smile.amazon.com and automatically asked if you want to support the Society of the Descendants of Peter Francisco (aka Peter Francisco Society). You will only need to select the Society once—it will be stored as your organization of choice.
  • Remember, whenever you shop through Amazon, be sure to go to smile.amazon.com so that your purchase will be counted toward Amazon’s donations to the Society.

Share the Society’s unique link with family and friends so they can sign up to increase donations from Amazon! https://smile.amazon.com/ch/23-7433649

If you use the Amazon app to make purchases, you will need to activate Smile on your app:

  • Once in your app, go to the menu (the three horizontal bars at the top left)
  • Scroll down and select “Settings”
  • Select “Amazon Smile”
  • Follow the prompts to enable Smile on your app

Peter Francisco Postcards (5 for $5 or 15 for only $10)
