Did you know that your purchases this holiday season could benefit one of your favorite non-profits (that’s us!)? Amazon offers a program called Amazon Smile that donates 0.05% of eligible purchases straight to us. Here’s how it works:


1. Go to

In order for Amazon to know who you would like to donate to, it’s important to visit their site through this link.  


2. When it prompts you to choose a charity, type in “Irving S. Gilmore International Keyboard Festival”

That’s our official name for tax purposes. You only have to choose us the first time; when you come back to shop again you can skip this step. 

Have a different charity chosen and want to support us? It’s easy to switch! Click on the Amazon Smile menu item in the top left corner and you can see who you currently have selected; click on the blue “Change” link and you’ll be able to find us.


3. Go shopping!

Every time you want to go shopping and donate at the same time, go to first and Amazon will begin tracking your eligible purchases and donate the proceeds to us. (Don’t worry, your Amazon Prime account still works with this new link!)

It really is that easy! 


We also receive a small portion of the purchases you make through clicking the links in our affiliate blog posts. We appreciate you taking the time to read those as well — click the links below to check them out.
