Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Wisconsin & Metropolitan Chicago strives to meet the needs of the communities we serve through the Power of Work. Our mission has remained strong for 100 years and without your donations, it simply wouldn't be possible. Thank you for continued support of Goodwill's mission!

Think Before You Donate - Defeating the Rumors

For the past 100 years Goodwill­® has been providing services that meet critical human needs in local communities in the U.S., Canada and 12 other countries. Because we are widely known and respected as a network of nonprofits that create employment placement, job training and education services through the sales of donated items in Goodwill Store & Donation Centers; we sometimes stand in the line of fire from individuals and organizations who are misinformed and/or misrepresent us in public. 

Donating - How it Works

You've cleaned out that closet, or maybe your basement or attic. Perhaps you are moving, or maybe you just needed to make some room and simplify your life. Whatever the reason, you've done the hard part — donating your items to Goodwill is easy. Unfortunately, we DO NOT offer home pick-up of donations at this time.
