GoodSearch is a Yahoo-powered search engine, online shopping mall and restaurant dining program that contributes 50% of its revenue to the nonprofit or school designated by its users. The money donated comes from the search engine advertisers, merchants and participating restaurants.
According to the company's website, as of October 2012, more than 107,000 non-profits are participating in the program and more than $9 million has been donated.
As an example, as of October 2012 the ASPCA has earned over $46,000, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has earned more than $18,000 and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has earned nearly $16,000.
GoodSearch was founded in November 2005 by siblings Ken Ramberg (Co-Founder of JOBTRAK, purchased by Monster.com and operating today as MonsterCollege) and JJ Ramberg, host of MSNBC's weekend show Your Business. In 2011, Scott Garell, former President of Ask Networks, including Ask.com and Dictionary.com, joined GoodSearch as CEO.
GoodSearch is a Yahoo-powered search engine that donates 50% of its revenue, about a penny per search, to listed American charities and schools designated by its users. The money donated comes from the site's advertisers. Users can designate which of the selected charities their searches benefit and also see how much money and how many searches have been performed on behalf of each charity. The company was issued U.S. Patent #7,769,738 in August, 2010 for its system of enabling recipients (e.g. nonprofits) to receive a benefit as the result of searches performed by individuals.
In September 2007, GoodSearch launched an online shopping mall called GoodShop. The company has affiliations with more than 3,000 online retailers including Amazon, Target, Staples, eBay, Best Buy and Apple. A percentage of each purchase, as indicated on the GoodShop site, is donated to the user's designated charity or school.
In November 2011, GoodSearch launched a charitable dining program called GoodDining. With GoodDining, users can eat in or take out at 10,000 restaurants nationwide and earn up to 6% donations for their favorite charity or school.
