WELCOME FRIEND! Welcome to Elvin H.O.M.E.'s Philanthropy Page. Here you will find many places to click around, shop around, and search through. ALL of the places on this page, when used, generate donations from larger 'For-Profit" companies that wish to donate to Non-Profit Organizations. Each Area is explained and either a web button given to make the jump, or information is given on where to go to Help Donate to Lothlorien Nature Sanctuary!

Raise money for Elvin HOME just by searching the Internet!
How can my organization earn money through Freelanthropy?
It is easy. People simply search the Internet like they normally do and money is generated for your cause. Freelanthropy's web search is powered by Yahoo! so you get the same great experience you know and trust. 50% of Freelanthropy's gross revenues (not a "portion of proceeds" or even 50% of profit, but 50% of all money earned goes back out to nonprofits).
What does it cost?
Nothing. Never. It is absolutely free. There is no charge either for participating organizations or for the end users participating in the program.
What is the 'Shop & Give' program?
The toolbar's Shop & Give button provides direct access to hundreds of premier online merchants and services. When you make a purchase through the Shop & Give button donation revenue is generated for the designated cause.
Where does the money come from?
Search engines like Yahoo! make money from companies that pay an advertising fee when users click on links during a search. Freelanthropy also has an extensive list of shopping partners from which it earns commissions. Freelanthropy takes half of the money it earns as a result of your search and shopping activity and sends it to your organization.
Must I make a purchase to raise funds for the nonprofit partner?
No. Simply doing web-searches through the toolbar will generate money for the organization. That money is generated from Yahoo's 'pay per click' advertising model whereby advertisers pay to generate traffic to their sites. It is very important that the service be used honestly and ethically to prevent an organization from being kicked out. Users should only do searches and clicks as they normally would in the course of their daily online activities. Searching or clicking because you think it will provide more help will actually do just the opposite as it will cause your charity to be removed from the program. The nonprofit logo on the toolbar also provides an easy link to the nonprofit organization's website, where donation information is typically found – this is another way the toolbar makes it easier to support a specific cause.
How much money can a nonprofit organization expect to make from this?
This number will vary from partner to partner, but the searches generate about 2 cents per search for the organization on average. In general, Internet users in the US are doing about 2 searches per day. So, for every 100 users an organization could earn nearly $1500.00 per year.
Does the toolbar contain spyware or adware?
No. The Freelanthropy Toolbar does not contain any spyware or adware and never collects any personally identifiable information (PII). There is no registration for end-users to install and use the toolbar.
