Support Horn with your Amazon Purchases!

amazon4schoolsDo you, family or friends shop Amazon?
Did you know that Horn school can receive a percentage of your Amazon purchases?

There are TWO different ways to support Horn school through Amazon:

>> 1. Enter the Amazon store through our Amazon Affiliate Link and Shop as usual.  Link in top banner:



>> 2.  Shop amazon through Amazon Smile. Select “Ernest Horn School” as your charitable organization:

What is the difference between and the Amazon Affiliate Link?

You have to choose ONE way to shop Amazon for Horn, you can not use AND our affiliate link at the same time.

Amazon affiliate link will earn Horn 4-10% back on purchases, but you have to enter using our affiliate link every time you shop.  You will NOT get any notifications that shopping (after you enter via our link) donates a portion of your sale back to Horn, but trust us it WORKS! We DO receive money from Amazon from your purchases.

Amazon SMILE will earn Horn 0.5% back on purchases, but it is easier to see that your purchases are benefiting Horn School through the on-line shop.

How To Use the Horn Amazon Affiliate Link:

Entering Amazon with our Affiliate link will earn us 4-10% of your amazon purchases.  The more people purchase through our link, the greater the percent return our school receives.

No signup or extra work is needed and the link can be bookmarked and shared with friends, grandparents, and extended family too. It is such a simple way for Horn school to earn funds! Read more detailed information about this program here.  

It’s SIMPLE – just use the link on our Horn Website to enter

The link can be found in the very top header of our PTO Website or in the right hand column widgets:



Or copied, pasted and bookmarked here:


Please note that when you shop with our affiliate link you will not get any notification that your shopping will benefit Horn … but trust us, it WILL!


How To Use the Horn Amazon Smile:

Shop Amazon through the store.  Designate “Ernest Horn School” as your charity.  Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchases back to Horn.
