We need your help getting donations form

By on November 19, 2014

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support the Robla Education Foundation every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to the Robla Education Foundation.

Unfortuantely, we haven’t been as successful as we would have hoped at getting the word out.  Below is a communication we recieved from Amazon letting us know that we need more of you to support us as you make purchases from them.


Dear Charity Administrator,

We have just completed AmazonSmile donation disbursements for the 2014 Q3 disbursement cycle to organizations that generated the $5 minimum disbursement amount or more. Robla Education Foundation will not be receiving a donation this quarter from the AmazonSmile Foundation because your donation balance was less than the $5 minimum disbursement amount. Don’t worry – we will hold your donation and add it to a disbursement in a future quarter. For more details, visit and click on the Receive Donations tab. 

In the meantime, you can increase your organization’s donation potential by spreading the word about AmazonSmile.
