Give the gift of employment to someone in your community this holiday season. Ohio Valley Goodwill is grateful to all the people who donate their used items, including clothing and household goods, so that we can provide career and job placement services for those who need them in our community. Whether you choose to donate to Goodwill or another worthy cause, we strongly urge you to take a moment to educate yourself about the charities you support.
It’s important to know during this time of year that your donations are going to support a good cause. According to CharityWatch and the Better Business Bureau, charities should devote 60 percent or greater from their overall revenues on charitable programs. As a nonprofit organization, more than 85 percent of Goodwill’s collective revenue goes back into its mission. Goodwill is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is recognized by GuideStar with its Platinum Seal of Approval, the organization’s highest rating for charities. Goodwill is a Better Business Bureau licensed charity and accredited seal holder. Goodwill was also ranked by Enso as the #1 brand doing the most good in the world, and was the only nonprofit rated in Forbes’ 20 most inspiring companies for three consecutive years.
