An AmazonSmile Can Make a Difference

By Karen Ronney

The SCTA Foundation has partnered with Amazon to support our amazing communities, providers and organizations with a simple smile. That’s right, it starts with AmazonSmile, a program that donates 0.5% of your eligible purchases on Amazon to a charity of your choice. We support tennis for people of all ages, those with disabilities, wounded veterans, seniors, low income populations, youth programs as well as top players. So please select the SCTA Foundation while you are making your everyday Amazon purchases at no extra cost.

Here’s how it works:

If you are using a web browser:

  1. Visit
  2. Sign in with the same account you use for
  3. Select Southern California Tennis Association Foundation as your preferred charity
  4. Start shopping! Remember to checkout at to generate donations for your chosen charity.
    Tip: Add a bookmark to make it easier to shop at

If you shop using the Amazon app on your mobile phone:

  1. Open the Amazon Shopping app
  2. Navigate to the main menu (=)
  3. Tap on Settings and then select “AmazonSmile”
