Amazon Smile makes BAT smile

BAT is part of Amazon Smile. (Check HERE for answers to the most asked questions about Amazon Smile.) Today, Amazon Smile made a deposit to BAT’s checking account. So, how does that work?

If you shop on Amazon, whether you are a Prime member or not, you can join Amazon Smile. To join go to Once there, follow the instructions, choose a charity (Burien Actors Theatre) and shop. Every time you purchase a qualifying item through the Amazon Smile site BAT receives 0.5% of the purchase price. There is no additional charge to you, and lot and lots of items qualify.

If you shop on Amazon, there is only one tiny drawback that I can see. The donation to BAT comes from The AmazonSmile Foundation and not from you directly. Therefore, you do not get a tax deduction for the donation to BAT. But since there is no added cost to you to make the purchase that you would have made anyway, all is good.

BAT is a 501(c)(3), that is, a non-profit recognized by the IRS. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to BAT in any amount, or a donation every week, month, quarter or annually, please use THIS SECURE DONATION PAGE. You will be emailed a receipt, and that donation is tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

Remember to check with your employer to see if they match your donation. BAT has signed up with most large employers’ giving programs, and BAT is happy to sign up with even more.

Either way, when you give, you become part of BAT’s production team. Your gift makes better live theater happen.

Theater is expensive to produce. Without you, BAT would go black forever. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
