Goodwill works to enhance the dignity and quality of life of individuals and families by strengthening communities, eliminating barriers to opportunity, and helping people in need reach their full potential through learning and the power of work.
To fulfill that mission, compensation for senior leaders at each Goodwill agency is determined by an independent process led by the agency’s Board of Directors. Each agency’s Board of Directors follows a rigorous process using a variety of tools, from independent consultants to salary surveys, to guide salary polices based on individual markets, peer standards in both business and NGO communities, and individual performance. Best practices are at the heart of the process. Goodwill salaries are appropriate to the performance of our CEO, the established market and our nonprofit industry. We are dedicated to ensuring the mission of Goodwill is achieved.
Independent charity watchdog organizations such as Guidestar and the Better Business Bureau’s Wise Giving Alliance provide details about Goodwill Industries International’s governance, transparency and financial data.
