Goodwill Works Foundation

Goodwill Foundation

Goodwill Works Foundation, Inc., was established to cultivate and steward financial contributions from individuals, businesses, corporations and grantmakers that support Goodwill’s education, job training and employment placement services in Middle Georgia and the Central Savannah River Area. Governed by a local volunteer board of directors, the Foundation is committed to connecting donors to purposeful giving opportunities that match their philanthropic interests and effectively investing those resources to maximize Goodwill’s sustainability, growth and reach.


Goodwill Works Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (EIN 26-2741240). All contributions are deductible for federal income tax purposes, to the extent allowed by law.


Hand Up

The founder of Goodwill Industries, Dr. Edgar J. Helms, believed everyone had a right to pursue the dignity of work and abundant living, often saying people living in poverty deserved a hand up, beyond a handout.

This was the inspiration for Goodwill’s Hand Up Campaign, a comprehensive fundraising initiative to enhance and expand our continuum of Helms College education and career services and applied learning business enterprises. As these pages show, the Campaign’s priorities are centralized in four strategic regions, each guided by local employers and community leaders.
