Why make a financial gift to Goodwill? Because with the support of donors, Goodwill can improve the lives of more individuals through the power of work. Our mission is to provide training, employment and supportive services for people with disabilities or disadvantages who seek greater independence. When individuals are empowered, families and communities are strengthened, too. You can be sure your contribution will be put to good use.

Grant founding from Thrivent Choice will be used to provide programs and services that help individuals with disabilities or disadvantages develop self-sufficiency and independence. By helping an organization such as Goodwill, you are playing an active role in providing opportunities for individuals who often face multiple barriers to success and a better quality of life.
