SILVER SPRING, MD – The Goodis Center for Research and Reform, Inc., today received the GuideStar Exchange Bronze participation level, a leading symbol of transparency and accountability provided by GuideStar USA, Inc., the premier source of nonprofit information. This level demonstrates The Goodis Center’s deep commitment to nonprofit transparency and accountability.
“We have worked hard to showcase our progress toward our mission, and our long-held belief in being transparent about our work, to our constituents,” said Robert Goodis, The Goodis Center’s Executive Director. “As a GuideStar Exchange participant, we use their platform to share a wealth of up-to-date information about our work to our supporters and GuideStar’s immense online audience of nonprofits, grantmakers, individual donors, and the media.”
In order to be awarded the GuideStar Exchange logo, The Goodis Center had to fill out every required field of our nonprofit report page on www.guidestar.org for the Bronze level of participation.
“I encourage you to check out our profile on GuideStar to see what we’re all about,” added Robert. “We are engaged in a number of initiatives, and we are thrilled to have another platform for communicating our advancement and progress.”
In his capacity as the executive director, Robert Goodis said he also planned to pursue a higher participation level with the GuideStar Exchange initiative in the future:
“We are preparing to enter a new stage with our programs. We’re working on expanding and rejuvenating some of our ongoing projects, and also preparing to launch some new programs that we’ve had in development for some time now. This is an exciting time for The Goodis Center, and our expansion will make it easier to share our impact with GuideStar and our supporters.”
The Bronze Participant badge now appears on The Goodis Center’s official website, which is in the middle of a major overhaul.
