Middle East Institute

MEI is now a registered member of AmazonSmile. When you shop using AmazonSmile, you can select MEI as the charity of your choice and Amazon will automatically donate 0.5% of your purchase to MEI.

Here’s how it works:

  1. to go to AmazonSmile, or click "Get started" in the box to right.
  2. Create an Amazon account or log on using your existing account, and shop as you would normally!
  3. Amazon will automatically donate a portion of your qualified purchase to MEI.

And the next time you log in to AmazonSmile MEI will already be designated as the charity of your choice, so you won’t have to go through the process again!

It’s that easy!

Alternatively, you can go directly to and manually select MEI as your charity. To do this, type “MEI” or “Middle East Institute” into the search bar, then select “Middle East Institute.”. If your account is already linked to another charity and you wish to change to MEI, you can do so at the top of the AmazonSmile webpage.

MEI will not receive any personal information about you or your purchase. These donations will come through Amazon and will be anonymous.
