What is AmazonSmile?

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support programs that help those who need it most every time you shop, in addition to your regular giving.

When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you'll find the exact same products and prices as on Amazon.com, but Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to programs that help grieving children, premature babies and others in need. There's no cost to you, and Baptist cannot see what you purchase.

How do I shop at AmazonSmile?

Simply go to smile.amazon.com and search for "Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation." You may want to add a bookmark to smile.amazon.com after you've made your selection to make it even easier to return and start shopping.

Amazon will then donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the Baptist Foundation, which will distribute the money to causes like these:

NICU

Close to 5,000 babies are born at Baptist Women's Hospital each year, and more than 10% of them need special care during their first few weeks. Our neonatal intensive care unit, or NICU, treats around 600 at-risk babies annually. This care is expensive, and many patients are on Medicaid or TennCare and don't have the money to fully reimburse us for their care.

When Marixa delivered a one-and-a-half-pound baby girl three months prematurely, the Baptist Neonatal Intensive Care Unit gave her daughter a fighting chance.

The Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief and Camp Good Grief

Since opening in 2010, the grief center has conducted more than 7,000 grief sessions, free of charge. The $400,000 a year it takes to operate the center is covered by the Foundation, as is Camp Good Grief, which has helped mend more than 1,000 broken hearts since 1999.

Beverly lost J.P., her husband of 19 years, to a robbery homicide. The Baptist Grief Center helped her and her daughter learn how to live again.

Baptist Operation Outreach

The Bible says the poor will always be with us as part of our human fabric... and so we reach out to them. Since its launch in 1995, Baptist Operation Outreach has grown into a cornerstone of our community involvement, providing free health, dental and eye care to the homeless and underserved.
