Ethical search engine which raises money for charity

Now here is an easy way to search the world wide web whilst raising money for charity. UK-based GiveFind, which they self-describe as an “ethical search engine” offers a different proposition to Google.

Search for your query via GiveFind.com, which is powered by Fonvo, and the company will receive advertisement revenue from their partners which will then be directed to the users’ chosen charities.

GiveFind

The brains behind this website is John Hardy, who came up with the idea at university when he set up a website to sell advertising space as part of his business degree. He raised £2,025 (approx. ) which he donated to Rotherham United Football Club when they were suffering from financial problems back in 2006.

GiveFind states that Google donate only 1.5% of their revenue to charity, yet the former is planning to donate at least 60% of their revenue to charities, a number which they hope to increase. And although it is generally targeting the charities, you can choose to donate money to societies, schools, local communities and many other causes.
