APC Now Accepting Amazon Smile


APC Forum, June 2017, Vol. 19 No. 4
 
Are you looking to further support APC in its mission and programs? Did you know that you can support the Association of Professional Chaplains when you purchase items through Amazon.com?  APC is now one of the charities you can support through Amazon Smile.  If you are not already using Amazon Smile when you purchase, signing up is easy and free.  Simply visit smile.amazon.com and sign in using your Amazon.com credentials.  When prompted to pick a charity you can search for Association of Professional Chaplains Inc. and select it as your charity.

If you are already using Amazon Smile but would like to change the charity you are supporting, Amazon makes it easy to switch. First, log into your Amazon Smile account by visiting smile.amazon.com and then click on “Account & Lists” in the top banner. In the box labeled “Shopping programs and rentals” is the option to “Change your charity” where you will be able to search for Association of Professional Chaplains Inc. and select it as your charity.

By using Amazon Smile, you are giving back to the APC community and helping us expand and improve the services we provide including conference scholarships for our members, all while purchasing the items that you were planning on buying anyways, and it costs you nothing. 

While APC continues to be a vibrant and healthy organization, many of our programs and resources for the chaplain community will depend on financial support beyond membership dues.  We humbly ask that you consider using Amazon Smile AND consider making a tax-deductible contribution to APC for the 2017 fiscal year in order to help APC fulfill our mission and vision and to continue to provide quality resources, programs and services for our members! Some of our current program priorities include:

1) Supporting and conducting research for, by and about chaplains including market research to best meet the needs of our members;
2) Expanding collaborative partnerships and strategic alliances that support professional chaplaincy;
3) Optimizing our technology and innovation to enhance professional chaplaincy.

A gift of any size will help to ensure that APC can continue to advance professional chaplaincy and spiritual care.  Please consider taking a few moments to make an online donation at www.professionalchaplains.org.  If you are considering an online donation, please have your log in information ready to ensure an easy and secure transaction. We also gladly accept donations over the phone; you can reach our office at (847) 240-1014.  Thank you for your support.
