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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing Goodwill become the largest employer in San Antonio for people with disabilities, since 50% of their staff have a disability

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

knowing that every donation makes a difference - whether it's helping someone improve their life or keeping items out of landfills through their recycling programs

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

eager to help me unload my car

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help even more people in San Antonio!
