Making a Financial Gift to Goodwill

Making a Financial Gift to Goodwill

You can be part of the transforming power of work!

When you make a financial gift to support Goodwill Industries – Ontario Great Lakes, your gift has a lasting impact by:

Reducing barriers to employment for individuals by supporting programs that help people work at Goodwill or find a job in the community, build their skills, offer a continuum of support so people stay employed and strengthen their financial futures through our Work First initiative.

Strengthening our community through job creation, employment, and community initiatives such as:

  • Goodwill Power of Learning Scholarships – providing scholarship opportunities to support the growth and development of all team members. In 2021, we provided 17 scholarships to employees in fields such as early childhood education, business accounting, and information technology. (Note: if you would like to direct your gift to a memorial scholarship fund, please include the name in the message to charity)
  • Bridges Out of Poverty / Circles® London is a community initiative coordinated by Goodwill that is committed to the elimination of poverty by harnessing the power of a caring community working together. It is comprised of caring and compassionate individuals who meet to share information, support, resources, meals, and friendship.
  • ClothingWorks – uses community support, such as donations of high-quality clothing as well as the skills and time of dedicated staff and volunteers, to give job seekers clothing and confidence to make the best possible first impression with prospective employers.

A healthier environment through our Circularity approach that addresses the social, economic and environmental benefits of the second-hand economy we work in. We are working to reduce landfill waste to ‘zero’, decrease our own impact on the environment, and by building a sustainable, circular economy where donated items are being repurposed or recycled. You can learn more about this work at Worth – a new initiative powered by Goodwill.

You can also choose at any time to make a gift of securities or mutual funds.
