5 Ways to Support NY/NJ Baykeeper

Here are 5 ways to donate to NY/NJ Baykeeper without writing a check! We have teamed up with AmazonSmile, Benefit Mobile App, Giving Assistant, Stop & Shop, and ShoppingGives which all allow you to generate donations for NY/NJ Baykeeper without spending an extra cent. Just shop for what you need using one of the methods below and you’ll be raising donations before you know it!


Do your shopping at smile.amazon.com. It’s the same great Amazon you love, only generous! Select Raritan Baykeeper, Inc. as your charity of choice OR use our custom link smile.amazon.com/ch/22-3617000 and .05% of your purchase will be automatically donated to us – at no cost to you! Amazon Smile hasn’t always been the easiest to you, luckily you can now automatically shop from AmazonSmile on both your phone and your desktop without giving it a second thought by using your Amazon App or AmazonSmile Browser Extension.

AmazonSmile App

AmazonSmile is now available in the Amazon app on IOS and Android Mobile devices.

AmazonSmile Browser Extension -Smilematic


Smilematic is a browser extension to completely automate the process of ensuring all purchases go through AmazonSmile instead of Amazon. Any Amazon link manually typed in, or clicked on a search engine result, blog post, forum, etc. will automatically be redirected to AmazonSmile without having to remember to manually change it! There is no catch -no adds, no pop-ups, no data tracking.




You can use the Benefit app to pay for groceries, clothing, eating out, booking hotels & air bnbs etc. Every time you use the benefit app to buy we get 2-20% back and the amount we raise can make a big impact for the waterways and habitats we serve. Benefit allows you to shop & donate both online and in-person.

1. Download the app in the app store or use this link:  https://www.benefit-mobile.com/causes/nynjbaykeeper
2. Choose NY/NJ Baykeeper as your beneficiary.
3. Shop and pay with the gift cards you’ve purchased for the exact amount you need!




Even better than AmazonSmile is Giving Assistant. Giving Assistant allows you to shop at over 3,000 major brands with discount codes, coupons, and deals. You can sign up for free and choose any 501(c)(3) nonprofit to support. When you shop you can earn 3-30%  cash back at over 3,000 major brands. Then your cash back gets donated to the nonprofit of their choice at checkout.
