When you click this link to the Amazon site, there is a little tag in this link to tell Amazon that they should contribute a percentage of the sales price of your purchase to BHSEC. You do not pay more for any item because of the program. Amazon has a few different programs like this. Amazon Smile is another program but it has a smaller return for us. This Amazon Associates program gives us a percentage which can vary from 6% to 8% depending on what category of merchandise you purchase.
Many organizations can earn between $500 and $1000 a month because their members regularly use their Amazon Associates link.
If you have grandparents or friends who would like to participate, give them the link and their purchases will earn money from Amazon for BHSEC. Remember the percentage (6% to 8%) does not get added onto their item price.
If you bookmark our Amazon link and use that bookmarked link whenever you shop on Amazon, then each time you shop on Amazon, the percentage (6% to 8%) of the sales price will be deposited into the BHSEC bank account at the end of the month.

How much money?
How much money are we talking about?
If one family spends $100 a month on Amazon, we can figure a conservative 6% return from Amazon, and a deposit at the end of the month of $6 to BHSEC.
If ten families participate and each spends $100 on Amazon per month using the Associates link, then BHSEC gets $60 at the end of the month representing our Amazon Associates share.
If a family shares the link with Grandpa, and Grandpa doesn’t get out much and gets toothpaste, detergent, and kitty litter, and so on delivered via Amazon Prime, just as an example, every month to the tune of $50 a month, and he uses our BHSEC Amazon link, then that $3 is deposited in BHSEC’s account each month.
How much might 10 families and one grandpa help contribute to BHSEC through this program over the course of one year given the above spending patterns?
Answer: $756 from Amazon to BHSEC for one 12-month period. Families and Grandpa did not give their own money to BHSEC. Amazon contributed the money to BHSEC because these families shopped at Amazon through the Associates link.
That money can pay for a lot of textbooks and sports uniforms.
Alumni: Please consider bookmarking and using this link for your Amazon purchases.
Many alumni use Amazon Prime at the student rate to order everything from books to clothes and toiletries because Amazon Prime free two-day delivery is convenient and saves students time. If the students in each successive graduating class bookmarked and used the BHSEC Amazon Associates link as they moved into college, then over time those students’ purchases would contribute to BHSEC Manhattan and be a way to give back to the school.
