Ithaca, NY and State College, PA - February 2010 -- What if even a fraction of the billions of dollars generated by search engine advertisers and online shopping was directed towards Scholarships,  Literary Programs and Awards of the Adelphic Cornell Educational Fund? 

That is the concept behind a new search engine powered by Yahoo!  GoodSearch donates 50% of its revenue, approximately a penny per search, to the charities designated by its users.  You use it exactly as you would any other search engine and the pennies add up quickly – just 500 people searching four times a day will earn around $7,300 in a year.  It doesn’t cost the users a thing!  GoodSearch even provides easy downloads of the search Toolbar.   Download the GoodSearch – ACEF toolbar 

Similarly with, consumers are helping their favorite causes by shopping at hundreds of well known retailers including Amazon, Target, Apple, Macy’s, Best Buy, Orbitz, Staples and others.  The shopping experience and the prices are exactly the same as going to the retailer directly, but by going through GoodShop, up to 30% of the purchase price is donated the user’s favorite cause!

The Ithaca NY based charitable ACEF a.k.a the Adelphic Fund  with its alumni service now run through Affinity Connection of State College, PA recently registered with the sites, giving Adelphic Fund supporters a chance to raise money for the cause every time they search the Internet or shop online.  The goal is to begin earning through the site this year which will be used to pay for Scholarships,  Literary Programs and Awards.   

More than 85,000 nonprofits and schools are now registered with GoodSearch and GoodShop and more than 100 organizations are registering daily.  GoodSearch has quickly spread via word-of-mouth and the blogger community.  Examples of other organizations listed on the site include:  The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation; the ASPCA; and The Bubel/Aiken Foundation which supports children with disabilities.

Using GoodSearch is simple. Because the site is powered by Yahoo, users are assured of high quality results - but each time users search, money is generated by the advertisers for the ACEF or other charity or school. 

“Every penny counts”, says Steven Ritchey [Cor ‘81] of the Adelphic Fund  “While doing a search or shopping online why not raise money for our cause?  There is absolutely no reason not to use GoodSearch and GoodShop - it's so easy” just download and install the GoodSearch – ACEF toolbar 

“We know there are a lot of people who want to do good but may not have the time or the money to help out.” said Ken Ramberg, Co-Founder of GoodSearch and former President of MonsterTRAK, the largest online career site for college students (now a division of “GoodSearch and GoodShop make it as easy as possible.  We’ve taken something people do every day -- searching the Internet and shopping online -- and have turned it into doing good."
