Online Christmas Shopping Can Benefit IFI
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Did you know that you can help IFI raise funds by shopping online with no additional cost to you? Well, you can! is an online shopping mall which donates a percentage of each purchase to a registered cause like IFI!

Goodshop has over 2,400 stores including Amazon, Target, Gap, Best Buy, ebay, and Macy’s. If you shop at all online, it is quite likely that the merchant you are patronizing is a GoodShop online store and therefore, a potential donor to IFI. At no cost to the purchaser, merchants donate a percentage of purchases made when websites are accessed through GoodShop.

If you’re like me, you will be doing some online shopping for Christmas this week — the fact that my purchases will benefit IFI is just one more incentive to avoid crowds, traffic and last minute shopping insanity.

Here is what you have to do:

  • Go to
  • Complete a one-time entry designating Illinois Family Institute as the non-profit you wish to receive the GoodShop benefit.
  • Choose a store and simply click the link! You’ll then be taken to that store’s website. Whatever you buy at that store during that particular shopping session will help benefit IFI’s work and ministry.
  • Make a purchase, and a percentage of your total will be donated to IFI! Some stores are contributing as much as 15% of the total purchase during the holidays.

Thereafter, whenever you shop online, start at (bookmark it) and click through to your chosen merchant’s site. The rest is money in the bank — for IFI!

So, the next time you buy books, jeans, music, gifts, airline tickets, software or other items online think of GoodShop and support IFI at the same time.

There are no strings attached, so please, do some GoodShopping this Christmas season. Please spread the word about this special fundraiser as well. If you’re going to spend money, why not maximize every cent possible for IFI’s work? Help both yourself and us to be better, wiser stewards.

Thank you in advance!
