GoodSearch – Charity Search Engine And More!

GoodSearch: Easy Ways to Give Donations to Charity

GoodSearch offers a way every single day that we can offer donations to charity at no cost to us, simply by surfing the web using a charity search engine! GoodSearch, a product of DailyGood, is a search engine backed by Yahoo that we can use to do our normal web surfing and simultaneously provide donations to charity.

They donate 50% of their revenue from the site’s advertisers, almost a penny a search, to the American charities and schools. The really cool part is, the users choose which organizations to donate to. This is no small undertaking either! According to the company’s website, as of January 2011:

More than 96,000 non-profits are participating in the program and 100 new organizations register daily.

About GoodSearch – The Charity Search Engine

charity search engine, DailyGood, simply do good, GoodSearchIn November 2005, siblings Ken Ramberg (Co-Founder of JOBTRAK) and JJ Ramberg founded the GoodSearch charity search engine as a dedication to their mother after she passed away from cancer. She had taught them we can make the world better by persevering together. They launched GoodSearch in 2005 after considering what even a fraction of the $8 billion search engine advertisers generate annually could do to help make the world a better place.

Aside from just being a good search (ha ha ) engine, the GoodSearch charity search engine offers a number of cool features as well. As already mentioned, the searcher selects the organizations to donate to, so they select the specific charity their searches benefit. They can also see how many searches contributed to each charity and how much in donations each charity is going to receive. For example, you can look at the statistics and see that as of April 2010 St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital had almost $15,000 in donations to charity from GoodSearch.
