We value all types of philanthropic giving and want to ensure that our donors give in ways that are meaningful to them. Maybe you want to join the thousands who donate their gently used items to us each year? Maybe you may want to make a financial gift? Or perhaps you might like to give opportunities to job seekers as a business partner.
Whatever form of giving you wish to engage in, we want you to know that you are valued and that your giving represents a significant investment in our mission of Building Lives That Work®.

In 2022, we received and diverted more than 20 million pounds of donations from local landfills in Central Florida! You can donate at any retail store or Donation Xpress Center located across our six-county region. Easily track your donations using our Opens new windowDonation Tracker.
Invest in Building Lives That Work
With the help of generous supporters, we can offer clients opportunities to achieve greatness. This means job placements and job skills trainings, serving veterans and our youth and developing innovative ways to prepare the workforce of today for the jobs of tomorrow.
Amplify Your Impact
It’s easy to host a Goodwill donation drive in your community or at your corporate location! Goodwill can pick up and haul away leftover items and other treasures from your neighborhood garage sale or business that can use a second life. Contact Ambar Pimentel, director of donated goods, to learn more.
