Goodwill strives to make the most of every donation, whether sold or recycled; it helps us accomplish our mission. In 2020, Goodwill diverted 2.2 million pounds of materials from the landfill and provided services to almost 3,000 people in the Lincoln community. The sale of donated items in Goodwill’s retail stores remains the largest source of funding for its programs and services.
Goodwill recognizes that services provided by peer agencies prepare people served by Goodwill to better succeed in Goodwill’s employment programs. It is with this understanding that Goodwill provides funding to colleague agencies to help with their own programs that align with Goodwill’s mission of willing workers employed and community resources maximized. Organizations currently receiving funding from Goodwill are Big Brothers Big Sisters, Lincoln Literacy, Community Justice Center, and YWCA Job Outfitters.
