You really DO make a difference!

As a Goodwill shopper, we want you to know that every purchase you make at our Goodwill stores changes lives.  Our retail stores were created to generate the means to finance our mission and vision, and to that end, 90 cents of every dollar generated goes towards empowering Central Texans through work.

Another part of our mission is making sure Central Texans have their high school education. In 2014 we opened our free charter high school, The Goodwill Excel Center, where adults ages 17-50 can earn their high school diploma.

These initiatives take funding, and that’s where your continued donor and shopper loyalty to Goodwill Central Texas makes such a difference for us, and all those Central Texans that we are putting on a new path to employment!


Your unused items become a launching pad to a new career!

We know you have a bag of items you’re ready to donate, probably already in the trunk of your vehicle! Drop it off at the nearest Goodwill donation location! Find one here.

When you donate, you truly are changing a life. Every time we receive a donated item, we can transform it into funds to support our job training, career advancement, and educational initiatives!
