This year's benefit of giving

The season of giving is in full swing. Christmas festivities just concluded and nothing says “Happy Holidays” more than a generous donation to Goodwill!

Since 1923, Goodwill Industries of Kentucky has been diverting thousands of pounds each year from landfills. By donating previously-loved belongings, a financial gift, or even a vehicle, you are supporting self-development for Kentuckians right in your community!

For your generous gesture, donations dropped off by Saturday, December 31 may be claimed as a charitable deduction on a 2016 federal tax return. Upon the drop off, each donor is offered a donation receipt. Keep the receipt, and record the donation’s fair market value.

However, a write-off’s impact is beyond a tax return. Donations are sold to support workforce development programs, helping stabilize local job seekers in the workplace. Each generous donation provides jobs and job training, renewing a sense of purpose and self-worth to program participants.

Every season, my family makes it our mission to donate. By setting a goal to drop-off a trunk full, we are partaking in the reason for the season.

To receive a tax receipt, visit your nearest Goodwill by Saturday, December 31 to donate!

our history

Goodwill Industries of Kentucky is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit headquartered in Louisville since 1923. Goodwill gives people up—not a handout—so they can experience the dignity and independence that comes from earning a paycheck.


our mission

We help people with disabilities or other disadvantages achieve and maintain employment to gain a better quality of life.

what we do

Goodwill collects and sells donated items to fund programs for Kentuckians who have disabilities or other challenges in finding and maintaining traditional employment. On-the-job training, job preparation skills, and employment counseling are just a few of Goodwill's services that benefit thousands of adults each year and strengthen families in Kentucky's communities.
