Support Silver Oak with your everyday activities without spending an extra cent! Take advantage of these great deals from our partners, and give back to Silver Oak with every purchase.Here's how...



If you are going to shop online, why not have every purchase you make benefit Silver Oak? If you shop at smile.amazon.com, Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase to a charity of your choice, which we hope will be Silver Oak! Smiles and kids… what a perfect fit! There is no cap on the amount Amazon will donate, and almost every physical product sold by the company is eligible, which means tens of millions of items. Digital goods are not included, but that may be in the future. Please sign up today.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Go to smile.amazon.com or click on the AmazonSmile box on the left.
  2. Log in using your usual Amazon username and password. If you do not have an Amazon account, please create one.
  3. Select your charity of choice. Go to the bottom of the screen and type “Silver Oak Educational Partnership” in the search box under “pick your own charitable organization”, then hit the search button.
  4. Click the “Select” button next to our name. Once you have made your selection, Amazon will remember your choice and return you to the Amazon Smile homepage, where you can shop as you normally do. If you forget to start on smile.amazon.com, amazon.com will ask if you want to shop on smile.

Simply by shopping as you normally would, you’ll be creating a donation to help Silver Oak students. There will be no additional charges added to your purchase price because of the charitable contribution.


Remember to use smile.amazon.com for all your future Amazon purchases. When you do, Silver Oak will continue to receive the 0.5% donation. After you’ve signed up and named Silver Oak Educational Partnership as your charity of choice, you won’t have to repeat the process again.
