Message from the President and Board Chairman

Our mission at Goodwill Industries of Central Florida is "Building Lives That Work." We do this by converting your unneeded items into job opportunities. When you donate to Goodwill, you're helping our neighbors care for themselves and their families.

Some who take part in our programs receive employment services, while others find jobs at Goodwill or in our community. Many haven't had much experience or success at work before coming to Goodwill. But we provide tools that help them discover their skills and talents, learn the power of a paycheck and experience the rewards of productivity. All this adds up to real, lasting change in their lives.

We can't do any of this without your support. Thank you for contributing gently used items and shopping in our stores. With your help, we can provide life-changing programs that offer hope and opportunities to those who need them.

Goodwill Follows Rigorous Process to Determine Employee Compensation

Board of Directors

Goodwill Industries of Central Florida is governed by a board of directors that meets quarterly. The board is composed of local business leaders whose valuable perspectives aid us in serving our six-county region.

“Being part of the Goodwill Team is truly an honor.  I believe in giving back to our community and Goodwill exemplifies what it means to give back.  We are giving folks a helping hand and providing them with opportunities to succeed.”
