Case for Support
How your support of Goodwill of North Georgia helps Georgia.
You've heard the old saying “when you give a man a fish, he eats for a day. When you teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime.” At Goodwill of North Georgia, we've embraced the philosophy of “a hand up, not a hand out” since 1925 and we're a part of a larger organization that has lived out that principle for more than a century.
We believe that when people go to work, it improves lives, strengthens families and communities, and energizes the economy. When you donate clothing, books, electronics, furniture, and other goods to Goodwill of North Georgia, you help improve lives and communities— today and in the future.
You know countless organizations that will accept your gently-used goods. What you may not know is that when you donate to Goodwill of North Georgia, the vast majority of the earnings we generate from your donations go directly to supporting our mission.
In fiscal year 2011, we served more than 30,000 people through job training and employment services and placed over 8,500 individuals in jobs. Those individuals were placed in good jobs with hundreds of North Georgia businesses.
Your gifts are tax deductible, and make a meaningful difference. There's a Donation Center close to you.
