PEC Named Only Top-Rated Green Non-Profit Based In PA

Just in time for Earth Day, GreatNonprofits announced the Pennsylvania Environmental Council is included in their 2011 Top-Rated Green Nonprofits List, based on user reviews submitted during a national campaign in March.
            PEC is the only Pennsylvania-based environmental non-profit included on the list and one of  more than 50 organizations across the country working to protect and preserve the environment.
            The reviews were posted as part of the 2011 GreatNonprofits Green Choice Campaign, conducted in partnership with GuideStar and a broad coalition of leaders in the field.
            "PEC’s community of supporters continues to grow as we work in collaboration with many partners to improve Pennsylvania’s rivers, trails and communities," explains PEC President Paul King.  “I hope that this honor will inspire others to join us as we continue our work to protect Pennsylvania’s environment in these uncertain economic times.”
            Although not based in Pennsylvania, the Earth Force environmental education non-profit with offices in Erie, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and the Potomac Riverkeeper were also included on the Top-Rated Nonprofits List.
            Over the course of the campaign, more than 120,000 people visited the GreatNonprofits site to read and write reviews. A total of 128 nonprofit organizations were rated and reviewed by stakeholders. 
            In the process, a total of 1,147 new user reviews were gathered. All the organizations on the top-rated list received ten or more positive reviews.
