Thank you to our donors, employees and shoppers for helping make Goodwill® a top 10 U.S. charity!
Goodwill Industries International (GII) was recently named a top 10 charity among the nation’s top 100 charitable organizations in the coveted rankings of The NonProfit Times (NPT) and Forbes Magazine for 2022. NPT placed GII second among the nation’s largest nonprofits on its Top 100 list last year, while Forbes ranked GII seventh on its list of the nation’s Top 100 Charities.
The NPT Top 100 examines the largest nonprofit organizations that raised at least 10% of their revenues from public contributions, including significant gifts to both program and government support services. GII ranked second on the list in 2022, among other powerhouse nonprofits like Feeding America and United Way.
The Forbes list highlights America’s largest charities based on private support and donations, and features categories including healthcare, domestic and international needs, and animal welfare. A notable component of the list is the charitable commitment score, which indicates how much of a charity’s total revenue went directly to its charitable purpose. GII’s score remains strong at 89%, and it uses those funds to provide tools, resources and services to strengthen its network of 155 community-based Goodwill organizations across the U.S. and Canada.
Across that network, nearly 80% of revenue from the sale of donated goods are used to fund the Goodwill® mission of providing job placement and training, and support services such as childcare, financial education, transportation, tax preparation and mentoring to meet the specific needs of their communities. Goodwill strives to serve more communities and more people every day, which is the very heart of philanthropy.
