“AmazonSmile” program to support student algal research

June 13, 2018
AlgaeIndustryMagazine.com

The Algae Academy’s 2018 goal is to provide 150 Algae STEM Kits to middle and high school classrooms nationwide.

The Algae Foundation has launched an initiative with AmazonSmile to support the Foundation’s K-12 STEM project, The Algae Academy, and reach more students through this algae outreach program.

AmazonSmile is an Amazon service that allows a buyer to donate a portion of their purchase to a charity/non-profit of their choice. The AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the purchase price from eligible AmazonSmile purchases.

“It doesn’t sound like much, but contributions through AmazonSmile can add up quickly for a project like ours,” said Tiffany Cannis, Vice Chair of the Algae Foundation. “This is an easy, hassle-free way for the industry to support the Algae Foundations’ goals to inspire the next generation of algae researchers, scientists and engineers. Anyone who orders from Amazon can donate this way, and it is especially effective when organizations that purchase goods through Amazon choose to do so through AmazonSmile — with the Foundation selected as their charity of choice.” 

The Algae Academy provided 48 Algae STEM Kits to middle school classes in California, Michigan, and Ohio last year. In 2018, their goal is to provide 150 kits to middle and high school classrooms nationwide. Each kit serves up to 150 students and is provided completely free of charge to teachers.

“In order to continue to serve our schools and engage students in algal education, we need to raise $20,000+ annually,” said Foundation President Ike Levine. “Our AmazonSmile proceeds will help us meet this annual goal.”

To contribute to the Algae Academy, visit: smile.amazon.com, log in, and select the Algae Foundation as your non-profit of choice. Then make purchases on AmazonSmile like you normally would.
