Ways to Donate

When you give a financial gift to Goodwill, you help build brighter futures for people in your community.

Philanthropic Support

There are several ways to support Goodwill through your financial donations.

Annual Gifts
Annual gifts provide Goodwill with the flexibility to invest in job training and programmatic expansion to meet the current needs of job seekers and employers. When you give, whether a one-time gift, recurring gift or pledge, you directly assist job seekers through training and support programs.
Monthly Giving Club
You can increase you support of Goodwill’s programs year-round through automatic monthly credit card donations or electronic fund transfers. Recurring gifts may be made through the online giving form or by contacting Laura Dickinson, annual fund manager.
Matching Gifts
Do you work for a matching gift company? Matching gifts are an excellent way to make your gift go farther than it could on its own. Many companies are willing to match an employee’s financial contribution to Goodwill’s Annual Fund dollar for dollar. Some companies will even double or triple your gift. Please contact Kimberly Separ , director of resource development, or your company’s human resources office to learn how to maximize the impact of your gift to Goodwill.
Planned Giving
Planned gifts are a perfect way to make a long-lasting impact on your community. Planned gifts are ideal for those who wish to support Goodwill, but do not currently have the flexibility to make an outright gift at the level they wish to give. As you consider your estate plans, naming Goodwill as a beneficiary is a meaningful way to continue your legacy while supporting one of the nation’s oldest and most impactful workforce development organizations.

There are many ways to make an impact through a planned gift, including:

  • A financial gift or percentage of your estate designated to Goodwill in your will or living trust.
  • A gift of retirement assets, such as pension plans or IRAs, may allow you to give more than you thought possible, while eliminating taxes that may otherwise largely consume these assets.
  • Gifts of life insurance policies or proceeds you may no longer need.

Please contact Kimberly Separ , director of resource development, to discuss planned giving options in support of Goodwill.
