If you use a charity search engine, it will donate money to the charity you choose, every time you use it to search the web, or shop online. The amount depends on which charity search engine you use.
It means you can earn money for animal charities for free as you go about your normal business online. Only minimal amounts are earned by each search, but it is definitely worth doing because they mount up over time, and it is totally free. With many people doing it, a lot of money is earned by the animal charities.
Whether using a PC, laptop, Mac, tablet or phone, you can raise money using a charity search engine. There are also often apps you can use if searching on a mobile device.
To receive money from a charity search engine, the animal charity has to be registered with them. If you know of animal charities that could benefit, tell them to register with the search engines on this page.
This page tells you about how you can use different charity search engines to help animals, and how animal charities and causes can join these search engines.
You can search for a cause that is already registered, at Goodsearch Give. You can register a cause in the same place.
Organisations that register should be non-profit. When an application for an organisation is submitted, Goodsearch will get back to you within 1-3 business days.
Each unique search made through the search engine generates approximately 1 cent.
GoodSearch is US-based, and is powered by Yahoo. It has numerous fantastic US-based animal charities registered that do huge amounts of good work, many internationally.
You do not have to register with GoodSearch. However, registering allows you to win extra donations for your cause, track earnings of your cause, and see who your friends are supporting. You can also choose whether to receive email updates from GoodSearch and your nominated charity.
Don't forget, you can also raise money for free for animal charities by searching and shopping through Goodsearch and Goodshop, and using coupons through Gumdrop by Goodshop.
