  • 'Tis the Season for Charitable Giving and Tax DeductionsNovember 21, 2011

    The holidays are typically the season of giving, but how has the economy impacted charitable giving?

    A weak economy has many people feeling more cautious than ever. As a result, 7 out of 10 of us (68%) will be “giving” more sparingly to our favorite causes, according to a study by Campbell Rinker. Another 1 in 10 Americans plan to stop giving altogether until the economy gets back on track.

    The good news is there are plenty of ways to be charitable without actually dipping into your pocketbook. All you have to do is shop more thoughtfully, and “doing good” can easily be a part of your everyday life.

    Here are some options:
    Shop Your Closet
    Have a couch that no longer matches your living room decor? Gently worn clothing that is cluttering up your closet? A television set that you’re not using? As long as your “stuff” is in good or better condition, charities will be pleased to take it, and you’ll be rewarded with a nice little tax deduction come tax time. To determine your item’s fair market value, use ItsDeductible, a free online site from TurboTax. It’s free, easy to use and it imports directly into your TurboTax return.

    Shop Online
    A site called GoodShop.com makes giving a cinch. Anywhere from 3% (on average) to as much as 30% of each purchase you make on this shopping portal – which is affiliated with over 2500 name brand retailers from Amazon, Toys ‘R Us, Target, to GAP, and Petco – is donated to your favorite charity. Simple as that.

  • Nonprofit uses toolbar to gain donationsNovember 22, 2011

    The idea is that you may not have time to volunteer or cash to hand over, but you probably do a fair bit of web searching. (You’re reading this blog post, after all.) Why not ensure that some piece of the revenue produced goes to a good cause?

    The technology that Tucson Arts Brigade is using comes from GoodSearch, a search engine that donates 50 percent of its sponsored search revenue to charities and schools designated by its users. The search is powered by Yahoo, and the money donated comes from advertisers. The idea was the brainchild of Ken Ramberg (the founder of JOBTRAK, now a division of Monster.com) and JJ Ramberg (an MSNBC anchor and the former director of marketing at Cooking.com). They figured diverting some of the $8 billion search engines make yearly to charities would be a good idea, and they created the technology to help make that possible. Since the company’s 2005 launch, lots of charities have come on board.

    The toolbar is no panacea for nonprofit fundraising in a down economy, but it is easy. GoodSearch makes the stats available so you can track your impact in your chosen charity’s revenue. Tucson Arts Brigade has received $244.43 through GoodSearch since it started using the service in 2007. It’s made a bit more than $63 through the service this year. In this season of giving, this is probably one of the easier ways.

  • GoodSearch Offers An Online Option To Charitable DonationsNovember 22, 2011

    In 2005, Ken and JJ Ramberg started a way for people to “give without giving.”

    They wanted to create something that was “game-changing in the world of philanthropy,” and did so by launching GoodSearch.

    The Humane Society of Yuma, Grand Canyon Association, Desert Star Community School and United Way – Pinal County, are a few of the many organizations in Arizona that use GoodSearch as a way to receive donations.

    The idea of GoodSearch is to take everyday actions, such as searching the web, shopping and eating, and using them as ways for people to give back to the charity of their choice.

    “People love to – if it’s easy – give back to their favorite school or charity,” Garell says.

    NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Charities are cash-strapped with the poor economy, but there's a way the public can donate without spending an extra dime.

    A website called Goodshop.com allows people to shop online, with a portion of that sale going toward their favorite charity.

    "We've partnered with more than 2,500 stores from Amazon to Target to Staples to Sephora to Petco to Expedia, and every time you click through Goodsearch to that store, a percentage goes to your favorite charity or school. You're spending nothing, but doing good by using Goodshop," said J.J. Ramberg, the co-founder of Goodshop.

  • Online retailers giving money back for charityNovember 12, 2011

    Penny per Web search

    Launched in 2005, GoodSearch began as a site that let people earn a penny for their dedicated charity for each Web search they conducted on GoodSearch, through a partnership with Yahoo.

    Since then, it has expanded to include GoodShop, partnering with about 2,500 online retailers to earn anywhere from 0.5 percent to 10 percent of the bill, and GoodCoupons, offering special discounts to encourage its users to shop online. To date, it has raised about $8 million for more than 100,000 nonprofits.

    Today, it is introducing its latest addition, GoodDining. By eating at participating restaurants, including about 200 in the Bay Area, and using a credit card that they registered with GoodDining, diners earn from 3 to 6 percent of their final tab for their cause. Through a partnership with Rewards Network, a restaurant marketing service, GoodDining tracks purchases made at any of the 10,000 restaurants.

    One of the tricky aspects of the proposition, however, is for people to remember to shop online through the site, and for them to come back again and again.

    “I think small business has just been a part of who I am,” said JJ Ramberg, 2011 Small Business Advocate of the Year. “It’s in my blood.” The host of MSNBC’s Your Business, cofounder of Goodsearch.com, and three-time emcee of NY Report’s Small Business Awards grew up in an entrepreneurial family. Ramberg’s mother, father, brother, husband, and both grandfathers were all entrepreneurs, so it seemed only natural that she took the same path.

    In 2005, Ramberg founded GoodSearch, a Yahoo-powered search engine that donates to the charity of your choice every time you search. The website also encompasses GoodShop, a shopping portal that links to more than 2,500 retailers, including Amazon, Apple, and Target, giving a percentage of what you spend online at those stores to your favorite charity or school. Coupons and shipping offers are also featured on the site.

    It’s only fitting that Ramberg receive the Small Business Advocate award for 2011. “I’ve been a part of this event for the past few years and so I know what an honor it is,” she said. “I do this job because I love it and because I’m so interested in it. To be recognized for it is just really nice and the icing on the cake.”

    Age: 40
    Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
    Her Story: Ramberg, the host of MSNBC's Your Business, found a way for people without time or money to help causes they believed in. She and her brother, Ken, had both worked with Internet businesses in the past and knew what a search engine could generate from the $8 billion spent annually. We thought, "Wow. What if we could redirect come of those funds?" Ramberg says. They launched GoodSearch.com (powered by Yahoo!) in 2005 and GoodShop.com in '07. Now each time someone searches or shops through these sites, half of the sponsored search revenue, or 3 to 20 percent of the purchase price, goes to the nonprofit of the user's choice - no cost, no catch.

    JJ Ramberg, the host of MSNBC's Your Business, offers a way for people to help causes they believe in without spending any money. She and her brother, Ken, launched GoodSearch.com in 2005 and GoodShop.com in 2007.

Each time someone searches or shops through these sites, half of the sponsored search revenue, or 3 to 20 percent of the purchase price, goes to the nonprofit of the user's choice. The only question is… why not? Wouldn’t it feel good to know that anytime you search online, you’re contributing to the betterment of the world? Send some flowers, for example, and it automatically shows the dollar amount increase to your cause.
