Raise Money for STC Simply by Searching Online (update)

Note: Updated rewrite provided on 3 June 2019. Originally posted here 12 July 2009 from STC's News & Notes, July 2009 issue

What if supporting STC could be as simple as using a search engine? Or ordering books online? These daily activities can actually help STC raise money through the innovative website GoodSearch and GoodShop.

GoodShop, is an online shopping mall where each purchase made through the GoodShop mall results in a donation to the user's designated nonprofits, charity, or school—averaging approximately 3 percent of the sale, but going up to 20 percent or even more. STC members can use GoodShop to find coupons and discounts at more than 1,000 stores.

GoodShop also includes GoodSearch is a search engine that donates 50 percent of its revenue to the nonprofits, charities, and schools designated by its users. You use GoodSearch exactly as you would any other search engine. The money GoodSearch donates to your cause comes from its advertisers—the users and the organizations do not spend a dime! The more members use GoodSearch as their go-to search engine, the more money STC can raise.

It's very easy to use. Visit www.GoodShop.com/choosecause; in the box that reads "Who do you want to help?" enter Society for Technical Communication and click on the Verify button. Once STC has been verified as part of the network, use the search engine on the same page for all your searching needs—each search will raise money for the Society. According to the GoodSearch website statistics, if 1,000 members a day have an average of 2 searches a day, STC could earn an estimated revenue of $7,300.  Revised

The Society for Technical Communication is listed as a Participating Nonprofit at https://www.goodshop.com/nonprofit/society-for-technical-communication.  New
