DONATING BASICS

DONATING MAKES GOOD SENSE

From the convenience of donating right in your neighborhood, to protecting the environment, to helping people in your community fight poverty, there are many reasons to choose Goodwill. 


Protect The Environment


Thanks to your generous donations, Goodwill diverted over 26 million pounds of usable items from our local landfill in 2019. With your help, we can divert even more this year.


Help People


We transform your donations into free job training and placement for locals.


Fight Poverty


Donating help Goodwill get people jobs, and those local jobs are a true solution for poverty.


Convenience


Whether you choose to donate at a Goodwill store or a donation center, nobody has more convenient attended donation locations


Donation Ambassadors


Goodwill’s Donation Ambassadors help you with your donation, keep the area clean, and help prevent the theft of donated items.


Tax Benefit


 Because Goodwill is a true 501C3 nonprofit, you receive a tax receipt with every donation allowing you to deduct your donations.
