Non-profit organizations can achieve their goals in a variety of ways. Goodwill achieves its mission by employing a combination of human services and entrepreneurial activities.
The entrepreneurial activities serve as tools to help our program participants develop valuable work skills and experience and also generate funds to support the mission. This is a unique combination that provides opportunities to serve people, maintain stability and sustain growth.
Goodwill is an entrepreneurial organization to the core--a product of the free enterprise system, always serving more people and sending a powerful message: "Goodwill practices what it preaches" to those it serves.
The businesses we operate allow us to help people and generate revenue to support the mission.
These businesses make Goodwill almost 94% self-supporting with total revenues of $105 million.
