Do you make online purchases? Those new jeans from Gap or your Amazon textbooks? Well, we wanted to let you know that there is FREE money that could be coming to UO after you make those purchases, without you having to do more than shop online! It's pretty darn cool, and we can see "up to date" results as the money comes in...
All you have to do is go to Goodshop.com and in the "Who do you GoodSearch for" box, type in "University of Oregon" and scroll down to select the UO (you'll pass Oregon State University in that list, so make sure to click on us!)
Next, click through to the store you want to shop at (clicking on the merchant's link will open a new browser window and redirect you to their site) and start shopping! A percentage of your purchase will go to the University of Oregon.
You might be asking, how much of a difference would a 3% donation to UO make off of my purchase?
The amount donated is different for each retailer but it averages approximately 3% of the total sale and can go up to 20% and beyond (the percentage donated is indicated below the merchants logo). The total amount raised can quickly add up and the sky is the limit. The more people shop through GoodShop, the more money will be directed towards UO, so tell your parents, friends and everyone! There is no cap on how much money will go to UO from Goodshop, so we could potentially be raising $100,000's! This money is directed toward UO scholarships...
Here's an estimate of how much UO could earn:
