Here at Goodwill, being good stewards of your contributions is of upmost important to us. We have proudly served Charlotte and the Southern Piedmont region as a trusted charity for over 50 years. Ninety cents of every dollar we raise goes to support our job training programs and employment services. Please know that we greatly appreciate your donations, and we make sure your contributions to Goodwill are put to good use in our community. We encourage all donors to do research before giving to ensure they are making an informed choice. Please click here to learn more about Goodwill.

Every Goodwill success story begins with a donation. When you donate to Goodwill, you are doing more than just giving a second life to your gently-used items. You are changing someone’s life by creating jobs right here in our community.

Goodwill receives more than 1,000,000 donations each year thanks to donors like you. Revenue generated from the sale of your donated items in our retail stores funds valuable employment training and job placement services for Carolina residents. Your impact doesn’t end there — the environment also benefits when you choose to donate instead of dump. Each year, your Goodwill diverts more than two million pounds of materials, including environmentally-hazardous electronic waste, from local landfills.

Goodwill makes donating quick and easy. Just drop off your items at one of our nearby Stores, Attended Donation Centers, or Mini Donation Centers, or schedule a convenient home pickup. It is our goal to honor your generosity with a simple and hassle-free donation process.

Want to know just how your donations change lives? After you drop off your items at Goodwill, use our Donation Impact Calculator to calculate the number of hours of career counseling, on-the-job training, résumé preparation and other services you’ve helped provide.
