Gulf Coast Community Foundation was recognized by The NonProfit Times as one of its Best Nonprofits To Work For in 2020. The national publication for nonprofit managers ranked Gulf Coast 22nd on its “top 50” list this year. The foundation ranked eighth in the small nonprofits group (15–49 employees) and was the only community foundation in the country on this year’s list.
The “Best Nonprofits” program, conducted annually by The NonProfit Times, is designed to identify the best employers in the nonprofit sector and recognize leadership and strategies that can benefit the sector and those it serves. The results are based on a rigorous survey process open to nonprofits across the country. Besides the ranking, the program provides participating organizations with an employee benchmark report they can use for further organizational and staff development. Key drivers of this year’s selections included employees feeling valued, confidence in leadership, trust in the organization, and esprit de corps. Differentiators for organizations that made the list included leadership, culture, work environment, training and resources, and overall engagement.
This is the fourth time Gulf Coast Community Foundation has been selected as a “Best Nonprofit.” The most recent previous recognition was in 2017.
