WHEN YOU SUPPORT GOODWILL, YOU HELP MAKE SURE EVERYONE HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO THRIVE
The COVID-19 pandemic has left millions of families with a loss of employment income unlike anything we’ve experienced since the Great Depression. Individuals in low wage jobs, those with a high school education or less, women, and individuals who identify as Black or Latinx have disproportionately felt this burden due to reduced work hours, lowered wages, furloughs and layoffs.
Too many of their jobs are not coming back, and when opportunities do become available, these job seekers will need new skills to earn a living, advance their careers and support their families.
Your support will help Goodwill® equip community members with the skills they need to get back to work and have the opportunity to thrive.
Make a Financial Donation
Your can choose to invest your donation in your local Goodwill or make a broader impact by supporting Goodwill on a national level.
When you donate new and gently used items, your local Goodwill sells them in stores or on www.shopgoodwill.com and uses the revenue generated to provided valuable employment training and job placement services for people in your local community.

How To Get Tax Deductions for Your Donations
Your financial donation is tax-deductible and it’s even easier to get a tax deduction for financial donations this year. Under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, you can deduct up to $300 in cash contributions made to charitable organization like Goodwill made in 2020. Talk with your tax advisor or learn more about this deduction.
When you drop off your donations at your local Goodwill, you’ll receive a receipt. Hang on to it! You can claim a tax deduction for donations that are in good condition.
The U.S. Internal Revenue Service requires you to state the value of your donation in order to claim a deduction.
When you make a planned gift to Goodwill, you secure your status as a job creator in the years to come. Continue the great work you have initiated in your life by empowering Goodwill Industries International or one of our 156 local Goodwill organizations to assist individuals in need by including Goodwill in your will, giving us an insurance gift, declaring us a beneficiary of your 401(k), 403(b) or IRA plan, or creating a Charitable Remainder Trust.
