NCRP Resource Development Committee is launching a series of efforts to increase the financial stability of NCRP! The first effort is to request Council members and friends who shop online at Amazon to make a simple (no cost) modification. Register at AmazonSmile (https://smile.amazon.com/), and the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5 % of your purchase to NCRP at no charge to you! It’s easy!
Follow the directions and be sure to select the National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (from the pull down list or searchable request) as the 501(c)(3) public charitable organization to receive the Amazon contribution for each purchase.
