Goodwill Works Foundation

Philanthropic2 | Goodwill Corporate

Goodwill Works Foundation is a not-for-profit organization that exists to enhance awareness, personal relationships and philanthropic support for Goodwill Industries of Middle Georgia and the Central Savannah River Area (CSRA) and its various enterprises.

In 1902, Dr. Edgar Helms created Goodwill in order to provide the tools for "the unfortunate" to attain "a maximum of abundant living" through the development of their God-given talents.  Our Goodwill continues to build on that vision with the founding of Helms College ( and its efforts to provide middle-skills educational opportunities to students seeking to improve their lives.

In 2015, our Goodwill provided services to more than 23,800 individuals who were unemployed or underemployed and helped more than 5,950 find jobs.  Fueling these efforts were more than 416,000 material donors and more than 1.2 million shoppers who yielded a record $21 million in annual retail sales revenue.  Critical philanthropic support also contributes to Goodwill's revenue and ability to educate and train, as well as to build a brighter future for those in your community whom Goodwill serves.

These achievements were made possible through our Board of Directors, the generosity of our donors and volunteers, and the continued support of the many businesses, community leaders, foundations and government agencies throughout our 35-county service area.  Together, we are helping thousands experience "a maximum of abundant living," one career at a time.
