When you use our special link to access the Amazon website, Amazon will credit approximately 5% of your pre-tax purchase total to the Mono Lake Committee through the Amazon Affiliates program. These funds directly benefit our Mono Lake protection, restoration, education, and science programs.
Are you sure you get 5% from Amazon? Don't you only get 0.5%?
Since we're an Amazon Affiliate, we do indeed get 5% back from Amazon. Read more about it here. The AmazonSmile program is more commonly used by non-profits and charities, and that program contributes 0.5% from Amazon. We are also a part of the AmazonSmile program.
Do I have to follow the special link every time?
Yes. Otherwise the Committee does not get credit for your Amazon shopping. You can easily return to this page in the future by using this website address: shopformonolake.org. Or read on for ways to create a custom Mono Lake-benefitting Amazon bookmark.
I didn't see anything on Amazon that says my purchase benefits Mono Lake....
That's correct. Amazon does not display any confirmation information, but we can confirm that we do get the promised funds! Just follow the special link to assure your purchase credits benefit Mono Lake.
