Goodwill® currently has a presence in 12 countries outside of the United States and Canada. In collaborating with Goodwill Industries International, our partner non-profits are able to generate revenue to expand their missions and support people connect to jobs in their local communities through training and support services.
Goodwill Industries International partners with organizations around the world to develop and sustain a Goodwill donated goods retail model. Our partners use the revenue from their Goodwill stores towards the job training mission services that they feel will best benefit their local communities. Goodwill works with partners to obtain local funding for their community-based enterprise. Each of our local partner Goodwills are independent organizations that are governed by its local leadership.
