Now there are two ways you can donate to the School of American Music–without opening your checkbook. Give-back programs from Amazon and Harding’s will rebate a portion of your purchase amount to SAM, and all you have to do is sign up.
Amazon will donate 0.5 percent of your purchases to SAM on nearly everything it sells. Log onto smile.amazon.com and enter School of American Music when prompted. On future purchases, continue to log onto smile.amazon.com, rather than amazon.com. Amazon will make a donation automatically.
For Harding’s supermarkets, go to hardings.com. Next, go to the Savings and Rewards tab and click on Community Rewards. Click on My Rewards, then click on Community Rewards and find School of American Music. When you check out at the register, type in your 10-digit phone number on the PIN pad or show the cashier the barcode on your Hardings app, if you have it. Harding’s will donate one percent of your monthly purchases up to $299.99, two percent on monthly purchases between $300 and $599.99, and four percent on monthly purchases of $600 to $1999.99.
