)-- GreaterGood.org announced grants totaling more than $970,000 were given to 97 charities in January. Funding for these grants came from the Gifts That Give More [tm] and other programs found at the GreaterGood Network websites as well as direct donations to GreaterGood.org.
In 2011, GreaterGood.org gave more than $3.1 million to 111 charities operating in the United States and worldwide. Grants focused on eight major cause areas: hunger and poverty relief, breast cancer research and programs helping women receive free mammograms, animal rescue, help for homeless veterans, aid for families coping with autism, children’s health programs, literacy, and rainforest preservation.
Since 1999, the GreaterGood Network has contributed more than $26 million to charity worldwide. The Network began with the Internet’s first “Click To Give” website in 1999: The Hunger Site (www.thehungersite.com).
Between 2000 and 2002, the “Click Here To Give” program expanded to include The Animal Rescue Site (www.theanimalrescuesite.com), The Breast Cancer Site (www.thebreastcancersite.com), The Child Health Site (www.thechildhealthsite.com), The Literacy Site (www.theliteracysite.com), and The Rainforest Site (www.therainforestsite.com). In 2011, two more “Click Here To Give” websites were added: The Veterans Site (www.theveteranssite) and The Autism Site (www.theautismsite.com).
Additional websites in the GreaterGood Network are PinkRibbonStore.com, Global Girlfriend, EcologyFund.com, and The Museum Store. All of these retail websites donate a portion of every sale to charity and provide other ways that their visitors can support the causes that they care about. The latest addition to GreaterGood Network is GreaterGood Deals, formerly known as Jasmere.com.
Visitors to the GreaterGood Network can donate for free to their favorite causes by utilizing the “Click Here To Give” colored button located on the website’s homepage. Click donations are paid for by sponsoring advertisers and 100% of the fees from site sponsorships go to charity.
