4. I rented (or purchased) a movie for $4.99, are you donating the full $4.99 or just a portion?

Prime Video will donate 100% of the purchase price for each title, excluding Sales tax. So the full $4.99 (which is exclusive of Sales tax) from your purchase or rental will be donated to the Canadian Women’s Foundation.

5. Will titles available for viewing through my Channels subscription be included as part of the donation?

Donations are made only if you rent or purchase an eligible movie title. Any eligible movie titles that you stream through your Channels subscription are not included as part of the donation. You must purchase or rent an eligible movie title in order to have the proceeds from that movie title donated. Please select "Rent", "Buy" or "More purchase options" to rent or purchase the eligible title of your choice to contribute your donation.

6. Will my donation be anonymous?

Yes, no personal information or details around your purchase/rental will be shared with the Canadian Women’s Foundation or any other third party.

7. Can I get a personalized tax receipt?

Since Amazon will be donating to the Canadian Women’s Foundation on your behalf, you will not be able to obtain a personalized tax receipt for your rental or purchase.

8. When will the Canadian Women’s Foundation receive my donation?

All donation proceeds will be provided to the Canadian Women’s Foundation in a lump sum at the close of the initiative.
