Can my squadron (unit) participate in AmazonSmile?
Currently, AmazonSmile doesn't allow for individual groups to sign up within the same Tax-ID Number. Unlike other online fundraising sites (like Facebook), NHQ does not receive detailed reporting to be able to designate dollars to squadrons. All AmazonSmile distributions are restricted to CAP’s national scholarship program which benefits cadets from every CAP Wing.
We are thrilled when people designate CAP and shop as it does raise important dollars for scholarships across the nation. AmazonSmile has donated over $30,000 (as of 11/2021) to Civil Air Patrol because of generous supporters.
If you are looking to grow revenue for the squadron, take a look at encouraging members to search the employer matching companies on our website. You should have a number of members/parents who are current employees or retirees of qualifying companies in your area.
CAP supports the opportunity to conduct Facebook fundraising for local squadrons with proper approval. The guidance can also be found on our Field Fundraising website.
