Where to Find Work and Training Opportunities Near You

One of the most common problems we face in the United States is unemployment. Whether it’s due to the recession or poor education, millions of our fellow Americans are unable to find decent jobs to sustain their needs and those of their families. Another reason why many end up unemployed is that they lack skills and credentials that are required in most workplaces.

This is exactly why Goodwill Industries exists. With the goal of enhancing the quality of life of millions of disadvantaged individuals and families throughout the country, Goodwill offers various programs that help these people reach their full potential and become productive citizens. In 2017, Goodwill trained over 288,000 individuals for careers in industries including IT, banking, retail, health care, and so many more.

Helping a Homeless Man | Goodwill Car Donations

Help Us Help Others

At Goodwill Car Donations, we are committed to assisting disadvantaged Americans in overcoming personal barriers to success through work and learning.

You can easily extend meaningful assistance to the people in your community who are burdened with disabilities, lack of education, and other personal hindrances to attaining financial independence. All you have to do is donate to us any vehicle you no longer use or need. Once your car or scooter or any other type of vehicle enters our program, we’ll auction it off and use the proceeds to fund the community programs of your local Goodwill branches.

Since all Goodwill organizations are IRS-certified 501(c)3 nonprofits, your donation will earn you a 100% tax-deductible sales receipt. This can serve as your ticket for claiming your tax deduction equivalent to the selling price of your vehicle at auction or its fair market value.
