This is an Internet search engine that donates a large portion (approximately half) of revenue generated by a search to the searcher’s charity of choice. The Bayliss Foundation is hoping that broadcast folks will register with GoodSearch, designate the Bayliss Foundation as the recipient and use the GoodSearch search engine rather than Google or Yahoo or MSN or Dogpile, et al.
Related to GoodSearch is GoodShop, a coupon search engine. GoodShop also will donate partial proceeds of coupons used to the designated charity. GoodShop offers coupons of retailers such as Amazon.com, Target, Macy’s, Land’s End, Best Buy, Dell, etc.
The Bayliss Foundation was founded in the name of John R. Bayliss, former president of Gannett Broadcasting’s radio division, Charter Broadcasting’s communications division and the owner of Bayliss Broadcasting. Last year the foundation provided approximately $60,000 in scholarship money to a dozen students at schools like the University of Georgia to Emerson College to Syracuse University.
The foundation also has internship program that places qualified students with sponsoring broadcast organizations such as Arbitron, Bonneville, Clear Channel, Univision and Regent Communications.
