While Goodwill is extremely grateful for the immense generosity of those who donated their clothing and household goods to us this year, there are any number of ways you can still support Goodwill if your closet has been emptied.

MAKE A FINANCIAL CONTRIBUTION – Goodwill gladly accepts and encourages cash gifts.  We sell donated goods with the goal of converting those donations into cash to fund our many free job training programs for people with disabilities and disadvantages.  By making a cash gift even more of your money will support the cause by eliminating overhead costs required to run our stores and donation centers.
