It’s no Google – because Google doesn’t donate a single penny to 2-1-1 Brevard when you use its search engine. But Goodsearch does.
Since 2007, supporters have raised $322.26 for 2-1-1 Brevard by using Goodsearch to search the web.
“That’s a relatively tiny amount, but we’ve only had a small number of people involved,” said Libby Donoghue, executive director. “If everyone who reads this article or learns about this on social media starts using Goodsearch and supporting 2-1-1 Brevard…”
According to the for-profit company’s website, more than $10 million has been raised for more than 100,000 nonprofits and schools since 2006.
Generally, Goodsearch donates 1 cent per search, powered by Yahoo! The company makes money from sponsored search results, as do other search engines.

“After that, add it to your bookmarks or favorites – or better yet, make it your homepage,” Donoghue said. “We’d love to triple that $322 from the past six years in just one year.”
The Goodsearch website says the phrase, “simply do good,” is “up on our wall” in the corporate office.
“Why? Well, because doing good can be simple.”
