This time of year, we all want to give back. It’s important, though, for givers to be sure they are giving to an organization that will use those gifts wisely. We understand this completely, and that’s why at Goodwill, we have a commitment to accountability and transparency.
We are proud to work with websites like GuideStar to share our information with you – after all, it’s the least we can do when you share your generosity and general goodwill with us.
Goodwill has a long history of supporting people in their journey to employment and independence in communities across the US and Canada. In fact, in our Greater New York and Northern New Jersey region, 93 cents of every dollar raised go directly to our programs. Both in our area and nationally, Goodwill consistently ranks among the top charities that make your donations go further.
Through the power of work, GoodwillNyNj enhances the quality and dignity of life for individuals, families and communities. We strive to overcome barriers to opportunity for people in need and facilitate empowerment, self-help and service. As the founder of the international Goodwill movement, Edgar Helms, put it, the emphasis is “not charity, but a chance.”
Please feel free to share this information with anyone curious about our cost-expense breakdown. We are proud of the work we do in our communities, and we are highly aware that we could not do it without you and your support. Thank you for giving this holiday season, and thank you for spreading goodwill!
