Goodwill's 2015-16 Annual Report

What do you think when you hear the name “Goodwill?” Thrift stores? A place to drop off your used goods? Do you think changed lives, changed families, and changed communities?

Seattle Goodwill has a mission to provide job training and education opportunities to those experiencing significant barriers to economic opportunities—and when you shop at and donate to Goodwill, you’re helping us achieve that. Last year, you helped us serve over 9,700 people.

Every year, we share of the impact we’re having on our community, thanks to generous supporters like you, in our Annual Report. This year, our Annual Report theme was “Breaking Barriers” and it focused on some of the barriers our students face—like lack of education, homelessness, absence from the workforce, or language barriers.

As a Goodwill shopper and donor, your support helps our students overcome their barriers—and we’d love if you took a minute to read our latest Annual Report to see the impact you’re helping make right here in our community.
