ACC FOUNDATION – HAVE YOU DONE YOUR HOLIDAY SHOPPING ONLINE?

An easy way to give to the ACC Foundation and shop for those holiday presents is by going through www.GoodSearch.com.  As one of its designated charities, this Yahoo powered search engine will donate half of its advertising revenue to the charity designated by the user.  Use it as you would any search engine and help raise funds for the ACC Foundation General Scholarship Fund.  Every search raises more money!

If you do your holiday shopping online, go to www.GoodShop.com, the online shopping mall.  This site also donates a percentage of each purchase to the designated charity.  Hundreds of stores including Amazon, Banana Republic, Dell, Best Buy, HSN, eBay, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kodak, and many more have teamed up with GoodShop.

To fund GoodSearch, go to the ACC Foundation website – www.austincc.edu/foundation.  Scroll down the menu on the left and click on Ways to Give.  There you will find the link to GoodSearch.  It is a great way to help our students.
