Did you know your amazon.com purchases can help support Michigan Architectural Foundation’s programs and initiatives that advance awareness of architecture, provide architecture-related educational initiatives and scholarships, and creatively connect people of all ages with architecture?

What is AmazonSmile?
AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations of your choice.

AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.

Two Ways You Can Support MAF Through Your Amazon Smile Purchases

1.Select Michigan Architectural Foundation as Your Amazon Smile Charity of Choice

  • Visit smile.amazon.com (not www.amazon.com)
  • Selection Michigan Architectural Foundation as your charity of choice.
  • Each time you make a purchase, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Michigan Architectural Foundation.

2.Purchase a Michigan Architecture Book Directly from the MAF Website

The MAF website currently features a number of interesting titles on Michigan architecture, with more coming in the near future. Simply visit the link above and click the image of the book you wish to purchase. You will be redirected to the MAF’s Amazon Smile page, where you can easily complete your purchase.

Be sure to check back and make a purchase before the holidays – architecture books make great gifts (and great gifts for yourself, too!).
