Millions are at risk of being left behind unless we act now.

You Can Make Sure Everyone Has the Opportunity to Thrive


During this pandemic, millions have lost employment income. 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 financial support will help Goodwill® equip community members with the skills they need to get back to work and have the opportunity to thrive.

Goodwill has a plan to build a workforce readiness infrastructure that ensures every individual has the skills and supports needed to earn a good job and advance into a sustainable career.

Your support helps individuals like Chelsea build the skills they need to thrive:


Your donation is tax-deductible and it’s even easier to get a tax deduction for financial donations this year.

Talk with your tax advisor or learn more about this deduction. If you have other questions, please contact [email protected].
