We decided to pursue our passion for doing good within the research industry after witnessing the incredible impact that donations generated by a few surveys with charitable incentives could do in the nonprofit world! This initial experience sparked the idea to build Research For Good – a company that simultaneously provides GOOD research data, GOOD customer service & contributes to the greater GOOD.
