Goodwill has long stood as a beacon of hope in our communities, transforming lives through the power of work. Your company can play a vital role in this mission by joining Corporate Connections, our specialized program that fosters corporate partnerships.
At Goodwill we believe in the power of philanthropy to effect real change. That's why we have streamlined the process for businesses to donate used items. Whether it's to declutter a closing store or office, empower their staff to give, boost employee morale, or enjoy tax benefits, it’s a great way to make a positive impact to your community.
To make your philanthropic efforts as seamless as possible, we offer setup and pickup services for donated goods every weekday, excluding holidays. Just 48 hours notice is often all we need, although we typically schedule pickups a week out to accommodate your needs. Please note that due to logistic constraints, we're unable to pick up in residential areas, including a home-based business.
Once we collect your donated items, you'll receive a donation receipt and an acknowledgment of delivery. Plus, we offer assistance and follow-up for IRS Form 8283 to ensure your tax benefits are realized without a hitch.
Our Corporate Connection Partners roster includes Hospitology in Chicago, Dollar General, Aurora Healthcare, The Container Store and several storage companies. By joining these visionary organizations, you'll drive positive change in your community and reinforce your commitment to social responsibility.
We welcome a variety of items from our corporate partners, including office supplies, (with the exception of furniture), large overstock, apparel, home goods, sporting goods, and personal care items. Please note that we cannot accept items with a shelf life or expiration date.
Want to get your employees actively involved in corporate giving? We'd be delighted to help you set up and host a donation event at your company. It's a fantastic way to boost team spirit while helping your community.
With Goodwill Corporate Connections, your business can contribute to a more sustainable world while reaping the rewards of corporate philanthropy. Get started today and empower lives through your generosity. Welcome to a new era of corporate giving.
