Fundraising in the digital world
What if everyone could make a small contribution to the solution every day at no cost?
We, the Good Impact Foundation, are excited about the power of purpose-driven internet search engines to raise funds for good causes. With our Digital Fundraising Program and the incubation of Gexsi – The internet search engine for a better world, we form part of the journey to change the way people use the internet. Gexsi is a search engine like Google, wrapped up in a social business model. With its profits, the company supports social innovators who contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals.
While there are multiple digital fundraising tools, from giving a tip or rounding-up online to SMS donations through your smartphone, impact-driven search engines like Gexsi are a particularly powerful tool to raise funds. First, we reach people where they are anyway – online. Secondly, our revenues are generated through existing ad networks, at no cost for the user, similar to Google. Besides, impact-driven search engines can monetize various affiliate marketing partnerships for a good cause, just like Amazon Smile. And thirdly, because of the extremely large potential user base, Gexsi has the power to inspire people – by using our search engine, they share the impact jointly achieved by the Gexsi community.
While more and more people set an example by making a deliberate choice to buy organic products, sign-up for a green energy provider or switch to an ethical bank, this does not hold true for the choice of the internet search engine. The market share of purpose-driven search engines remains insignificant. We believe that in a few years time a good proportion of people will opt for a search engine that fits their ethical perspectives. With Gexsi we seek to accelerate this process.
We support constructive journalism, engage and incubate innovative initiatives or business models with scalable approaches to solving societal challenges.
Our vision is a world in which all people have access to the latest information, inspiration and tools for solving our social and environmental problems, to make the Global Goals reality.
In order to accelerate positive change we need to change the perspective and think in solutions rather than problems. Our mission is to spread the solutions to our social and environmental challenges and inform, inspire and engage as many people as possible.
We believe that good information is the basic prerequisite for good actions – only those who know what is possible and what could be done better can align their future actions and make conscious decisions. We also believe that we can solve even the big challenges faster together and that today many people are willing to make a contribution if the right options are available.
We are a modern foundation rooted in the 21st century. We use the full range of tools to advance our mission. Apart from our foundation’s core program related to solution-oriented media, we help to incubate new solutions and business ideas and invest funds in purpose-driven organizations that contribute to our mission.
