October 11, 2016 (Denver, CO): Just in time for the holidays! The Billiard Education Foundation (BEF) is pleased to announce that it has teamed up with AmazonSmile to provide a new way for supporters to help fund the BEF’s pool and billiard programs for youth around the U.S.

In 2013, AmazonSmile was launched by Amazon as a platform for online shoppers to give back to the charity of their choice while purchasing products they would already find on

According to an Amazon press release, “Customers who visit AmazonSmile will find the exact same Amazon they know and love. They’ll enjoy the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience – with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to their favorite charitable organization.”

To get involved, when shopping Amazon via AmazonSmile (, simply select the Billiard Education Foundation as your designated charity. 0.5% from each purchase made on AmazonSmile will go to the BEF.
