Support Nonprofits by Taking Surveys

Support Nonprofits by Taking Surveys

 

When we live in a time with a disappointing economic system and some of the highest unemployment rates our country has seen, people may find it difficult to contribute what seldom money they have to nonprofit organizations. It is a common trend to find individuals whom firmly believe in the mission of an organization or perhaps have personal ties with a group or a cause yet cannot comfortably donate their money due to financial limitations. Research for Good is an organization that responds directly to this problem.

Research for Good has a unique goal of providing people a new way to support the nonprofit organization of their choice without having to spend any of their own money. The organization acts as a bridge between marketing research opportunities based online and everyday people that want to donate but don’t have the financial means, through surveys. Research for Good has taken the millions of dollars that marketing research groups use to entice people to take surveys and gave it a purpose of supporting nonprofits. As stated by Sean Case, CEO of Research for Good, “We believe everyone has an opinion to give — so why not give it to support a good cause?”

Recently Research for Good worked with the Hershey Corporation in generating a large group of people to provide feedback on an upcoming advertising plan for the Milton Hershey School. Between Research for Good and several other nonprofit organizations such as ProjectHOPEFUL, a donation of over $10,000 was given to the Hersey Corporation to assist in educating, encouraging and enabling families who planned to adopt children with HIV/AIDS. Although Research for Good has numerous success stories such as this and will soon be expanding their works to an international level, they are constantly looking for new membership from both individuals and nonprofits.

If you would like to participate in Research for Good or know of a nonprofit organization that could benefit from this program, please visit www.researchforgood.com or e-mail info@researchforgood.com. They are always looking for new members and feedback!

Hi everyone,

Thanks so much for all of your comments! We are so excited about the feedback you've given us and send a warm welcome to those of you who have signed-up!

I just want to clarify one point in the post above - the recipient of the $10,000 donation was ProjectHOPEFUL (an amazing organization which you can check out at www.projecthopeful.org). The funds for the donation were provided by the Hershey Company to be distributed by Research for Good as a thank you to the organization which partnered with us to provide feedback in this research study.

Thank you again for supporting Research for Good and don't forget, if you like this concept please like us on Facebook (facebook.com/ResearchforGood) and follow us on Twitter (twitter.com/ResearchforGood).

It is a great idea. Surely no one persons ethics are going to meet exactly anothers, but in generalities there can be found common ground. For example; one person may feel that the only ethical food is organic, non-GMO and vegan but they can still support a movement to only allow true free range animal farming. Anything that gets corporate money to do the "right thing" is a good idea in principle at least.

This sounds like a good idea but I think you would need to pick your corporate partners carefully. For example, chocolate (Hershey's) is an industry that is notorious for relying on child labor, under not-great conditions. Nice that they want to do something for HIV+ kids, but I suspect their motives have as much to do with marketing a child-friendly image as they do with charity.
