AmazonSmile

AmazonSmile is a free and easy way to support your favorite charities and non-profits at no cost to you! By simply selecting South Central STEM Collective as your charity, Amazon will donate 0.5% of every purchase you make to us. Although this sounds small, it is by no means insignificant and every little bit helps!
