Donate to GPS, just by shopping on Amazon!

Some of our supporters recently asked us to join the Amazon Smile program so they could donate to us just by shopping on Amazon. Well, I just set it up and its ready to go! Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

Its very easy. First, just visit Amazon through the special program link at

Then enter our name “Galapagos Preservation Society” into the search box on the lower right of the page.

Press “select” after you find us.

Begin shopping!

The shopping experience on Amazon Smile will be identical to the regular Amazon site – same prices, same selection – with the exception that eligible products will be marked as such. Nearly every physical product is eligible, the exceptions are mainly for electronic items like Kindle E-books.

Amazon will donate 0.5% of your purchase totals to GPS. Please shop through and make your purchases count toward money for conserving the Galapagos!


Accept Donations

Fund raising is essential to non-profit organizations.  To help you with this, Foundation includes ways to help you gather donations.  The home page has an optional donations bar that you can use to help raise funds.  It allows you to give a call to action, a description of your campaign, goal, percentage raised graph and a donate button.  This donate button is tied to PayPal, allowing you to easily collect donations online with a free account.

There is also an included donation widget, so you can easily have a reminder to give in any sidebar you choose. It’s one more reason why the Foundation is a great theme for your non-profit.

MailChimp Integration

Why settle for a feedburner diagest of your recent posts, when you can use MailChimp to send REAL newsletters to your supporters? MailChimp is a fully featured, newsletter provider serving clients large and small from all around the world. They provide quality, easy to use templates for your campaign, quality tools to manage your subscribers and powerful resources to track your campaigns. If you desire automated mailing of your posts, they can even handle that too.

You might be asking, “How much does this cost?” That’s part of the great news. You can have a list of up to 1,000 subscribers and send up to 6,000 emails per month for free. If you need a list larger than that, they have many paid plans to choose from. They even give a discount to non-profits.

Other companies imitate, MailChimp innovates.
