Durham, NC (PRWEB) June 09, 2014
Goodwill Community Foundation, a Durham-based, tax-exempt organization dedicated to creating opportunities for a better life, announces that GCFLearnFree has received a 2014 Top-Rated Award by GreatNonprofits.
"We have pioneered in the online learning space since 1999 by creating interactive, interesting and easy-to-understand lessons,” says Rev. Dennis McLain, president, Goodwill Community Foundation. “This recognition further supports our goal of providing free online learning tools that people enjoy using. We know the best way to help people improve their knowledge is to build a site and tools that provide a positive engagement experience.”
The recognition is based on the number of positive online reviews and was given to GCFLearnFree based on feedback and personal experiences shared by people who have used the site. From educators to people looking to improve their work marketability to learners seeking an increased understanding of a subject, GCFLearnFree is made possible through the funds raised from donations of gently used clothing and household items to any of the 37 GCF Donation Centers & Stores across eastern North Carolina.
While the Top-Rated Awards run through the end of October, GCFLearnFree was part of the inaugural group to qualify for the year. In addition, the organization has been added to the GreatNonprofits #GivingTuesdayGuide, an interactive guide to top nonprofits throughout the years that will be available to the public as the 2014 holiday season approaches.
