Googling for Charity

On my son’s support group listserve last week, someone mentioned GoodSearch.com as a way to make money for non-profits.

By adding your favorite non-profit and searching from GoodSearch’s webpage (instead of another search engine), money will go to your designated non-profit.
There’s over 45,000 non-profits registered. I figure with how often I run web searches, I could have already made some groups a couple thousand dollars…
Just wanted to pass along an easy way to help a favorite non-profit.


EmilyCC works for a national non-profit and lives in Phoenix, Arizona with her spouse and three children. She is a former editor of Exponent II and a founding blogger at The Exponent.

    Technically, Goodsearch doesn’t Google because they’re powered by Yahoo!. I’ve heard of them, and two others. According to a guy on a message board I frequent, Goodsearch and Goodtree are both for profit organizations that donate part of their income to charity. Goodtree uses Infosearch, and the third one, Search Kindly, uses Google as their search engine and also donate 100% of revenue to charity.

    True about search kindly, but Goodsearch donates more per click than Search Kindly and you can select the non-profit it gives the money too. Look up LDS Philanthropies on Goodsearch as the designated cause. It’s a penny a click, which is more than search kindly per click from what I understand. I use Google search for the things it does better, but Goodsearch for most of my searching, and it’s adding up.
