Giving through PayPal
Many people already have a PayPal account or are familiar with how they work. Through PayPal you can make a contribution to CEF of Tennessee with a credit or debit card. If you have an account with PayPal, you can arrange a direct bank draft style deposit from your bank to us. Additionally, you have the option to set up a monthly donation at the PayPal site.
Giving with Stocks & Bonds
We can also receive gifts of stocks or bonds though Raymond James Financial Group. This is an option that has been a great resource to those who choose to transfer stock options to CEF. This is a blessing for our state office and all of our Chapters scattered throughout Tennessee. See the information below to contact a representative who can arrange for this type of donation.

Giving with Amazon Smile
If you happen to be an Amazon online shopper, you can designate CEF of Tennessee as your “Smile” recipient. AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon with the same products, prices, and shopping features as Amazon.com. The difference is that when you shop on AmazonSmile, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to the charitable organization of your choice. If you already have an Amazon account, please consider designating us as your charitable organization.
The quickest way to get to the Amazon smile site is to do the following. When you have found an item that you are about to purchase on the Amazon website, look at the internet address and simply replace the “www” with “smile,” then hit the enter key. You will instantly be transferred to the Smile site where you can finish your purchase and we can receive the donation (if you designate us). It does not cost you anything extra and we get a donation. That is certainly a win – win deal!
Giving with Kroger Community Rewards
If you shop at Kroger and choose our organization as the Charity to support, we would receive a percentage of quarterly proceeds that Kroger receives. Our organization is listed as CEF of Tennessee, Inc. You can choose our organization in person at the Customer Service desk at your local Kroger. Just have your Kroger card number available. If you do not have this number that Kroger assigns to you, then Customer Service can help you with that.
Year after year, local schools, churches and other nonprofit organizations earn millions of dollars through Kroger Community Rewards. Kroger Community Rewards makes fund-raising easy… all you have to do is shop at Kroger and swipe your Plus Card!
