Goodwill has always been a favorite non-profit of mine because they assist an incredible number of people in San Antonio. Goodwill's mission is to "help change lives through the power of work." They serve people with mental and physical disabilities; those who have experienced a life crisis like divorce or the death of a spouse; at-risk populations; summer youth programs; and so much more. Goodwill gets the funding for this by selling your donations in their stores. Donating one chair can give someone 46 minutes of job training. Eighty-four percent of money raised goes directly toward "supporting and growing critical community-based programs and services." This is one of the highest rates for any non-profit. Thank you, Goodwill, for what you do for San Antonio.
