We all lead busy lives, and there’s not always enough time to commit to all the wonderful volunteer opportunities available to us. But did you know that you can support the Carrington Charitable Foundation with the click of a mouse?

The AmazonSmile program is a great way to give to the Carrington Charitable Foundation every time you shop with Amazon, when you make eligible purchases. Click here for details about AmazonSmile (you’ll need to try the link from home).

Simply follow the instructions below to select "Carrington Charitable Foundation" as your charity and activate AmazonSmile in the app. They'll donate a portion of your eligible mobile app purchases to CCF. Here’s how it works:

  1. 1. Open the Amazon app on your phone.
  2. 2. In the search window, type AmazonSmile.
  3. 3. If you’ve already selected Carrington Charitable Foundation as your charity in the past, tap the Get Started button.
  4. 4. If you haven’t already selected CCF for AmazonSmile in the past or on a desktop computer, you may have to try this link to sign up (please remember to try the link from home).
  5. 5. On the next Turn on AmazonSmile in the appscreen, tap the Next button.
  6. 6. On the next screen, tap the Turn on AmazonSmile button.
  7. 7. That’s it!

Thank you for considering using AmazonSmile in the app to support CCF!​

The Carrington Store
The Carrington Store is an online storefront exclusively for Carrington Associates. A percentage of all the items purchased from the Carrington Store goes directly to CCF as a general donation. Carrington- and CCF-branded products available include an H2Go Water bottle, Synergy Pro backpacks, and more. It’s a great way to show your company pride – and support a worthy cause! All Associates with login credentials can buy company goods at the Carrington Store, which is accessible only through Carrington Compass. You’ll find the link on the Carrington Compass homepage in the COMPANY SHORTCUTS section on the right side of the page.

Casual for a Cause
For years, Associates have supported the CCF through the Casual for a Cause program, which allowed Associates to wear jeans every day to work in exchange for donating at least $5 a pay period to CCF. Although many Associates are now working from home, that support is needed more than ever before. The Casual for a Cause payroll deduction program makes a great impact on the Foundation’s giving opportunities throughout the year, and your donations really make a difference in our communities. For example, money raised from this program in 2021 allowed CCF to make Animal Awareness Grants, as well as a variety of other grants requested by Associates to support their local communities.

When you enroll in the program, you’ll know you’re helping charities that are important to Carrington Associates. Follow these easy instructions to making your workday just a little more casual:

  1. 1. Log in to Oracle HCM from the Oracle button in the right-side navigation buttons on the Carrington Compass homepage.
  2. 2. Click on “Menu” on the top left hand side of the page.
  3. 3. Click on “Life Event.”
  4. 4. Click on “Carrington Charitable Foundation.”
  5. 5. Elect how much you would like to donate from each paycheck ($5 minimum donation per pay period). This payroll deduction is automatic, and will begin with your next pay period. If and when you return to an office location, you can wear jeans every day. And for everyone working from home, know that by contributing to Casual for a Cause you are making an important difference in the amount of good CCF can do.
