thumbs upSupport the Corvair Preservation Foundation (CPF) by Shopping at Amazon!
Date: April 23, 2016 11:14AM

Mike Hall, President of CPF has taken the steps to now enable everyone to help support the Foundation in association with Amazon Smile - a great innovation to donate .5% of your purchase of eligible products.
You need only to choose Corvair Preservation Foundation using the drop down menu near the top of the page. Then do your online shopping at the Amazon Smile portal.
Easy as that!
Of course the CPF is glad to accept your tax deductible contributions directly as well!

CORSA's own Corvair Preservation Foundation - a non-profit 501c3 foundation which is dedicated to preserving and promoting the history of the Corvair. Many archives and artifacts as well as active presentation of Corvair knowledge by speakers at conventions & events, as well as published articles in the Communique and Online. CPF operates a Corvair Museum with great displays in the Ypsilanti Automotive Heritage Collection near famous Willow Run, MI.

Done, pretty easy. The only caveat was one must remember to use amazon smile instead of just plain amazon. It is all explained in when you sign up.

Can you explain further as to what difficulty you experienced?
Does the page load as the normal Amazon site would?
I'm not sure what "scripts" you are describing.

We want to make sure it works easily.

I encounter no problems on my system: Win7 & Chrome Browser.

Zachness, I sent you a PM with some possible solutions.
Seems that Flash gets crazy with certain video drivers sometimes.
You can also use http://smile.amazon.com/gp/goldbox Which avoids the flash ads on the Smile Home page.

No problems with Win 10 and Chrome. CPF is already raking in the dough from my purchases.

Oh no! Now I have to buy twice as much at Amazon smile as I was already helping Shriners Hospitals. The UPS person will get to be friends with my k-9 yet.

Just a reminder (if it's not too late) to use: [smile.amazon.com] for your Amazon purchases, designating the CPF as beneficiary.

I do.

They don't get much this way, but it doesn't cost me anything extra!

I just selected CPF on Amazon smile. We spend 8k-15k a year on Amazon, but .5% of those numbers should help out a little bit.

Thanks, Joe!
10K at .5% give $50.00 to the Corvair Preservation Fund.

Thank you for supporting CPF - a Vairy worthwhile organization.

Thanks for the info, Paul. I just placed an order for $374. So that means the CPF will get $18.70 from my purchase, which I was going to make anyway.

Too bad this doesn't happen more often!
