'Creating an environment for people to improve the quality of their lives through employment, learning and life enrichment opportunities.'
The GCF Community Foundation has been a leader in an era of change, providing jobs and job training and removing barriers to employment for people with disabilities and disadvantaging circumstances.
The GCF Community Foundation supports Goodwill Industries of Eastern NC with donations of materials for sale in retail centers. It supports other private, nonprofit social service organizations in achieving these same goals with grants of cash, materials and equipment.
Melbourne social enterprise Who Gives A Crap sold nearly 3 million rolls of toilet paper in 2014/15 and gave half the proceeds to WaterAid Australia, but co-founder Simon Griffiths says the donation would have been less had the startup adopted a non-profit model when it launched two years ago.
