The Good Turn was founded in March 2018 by Melani Harris. As a Durham native she wanted to create an organization that not only gives back to the community, but also partners with the community. 



With her degree in Communication Studies from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Melani desires to build a platform that encourages the idea that we all need one another, and can help each other reach our goals. Collectively we can accomplish great things.


Our Mission:

To help bring awareness to local nonprofit organizations by fundraising, organizing donation drives, and volunteering in the community.

"Always try to do good to each other and to all people"

1 Thessalonians 5:15


Our Goal


The Good Turn focuses on creating a platform to where businesses and organizations will want to collaborate and work with The Good Turn if they desire to do a fundraiser, collect donations for a cause or need volunteers for an event. We want to bring more exposure to organizations that help the Durham community. With Durham continuing to evolve, it is now the time, more than ever to reinforce the importance of the community partnering and coming together for something greater than ourselves.
