GoodDeeds Community Partnership Program
GoodDeeds is a donation drive program that creates partnerships with local schools, youth sports teams, religious organization and nonprofit organizations. By hosting a donation drive on behalf of Goodwill, you can raise funds for your organizations while collecting items that can be sold in Goodwill stores to raise money for our programs and services.
Who is eligible?
Any of the following types of organizations located in the Albuquerque Metro area, Rio Rancho, Corrales or Bernalillo:
- Schools and school clubs
- Religious organizations
- Service clubs (Rotary, Optimists, Civitans, etc)
- Non- professional sports teams/leagues
- Professional associations
- Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts
- Any organization designated as nonprofit by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service
How does the GoodDeeds program work?
- Fill out the GoodDeeds participation form (above)
- You will be contacted by Goodwill and secure a site visit/meeting date
- Goodwill draws up an informal agreement establishing payment terms, bin size, rate of pay, event date, etc (events should be scheduled no sooner than 4-6 weeks from date of initial inquiry)
- You promote the event
- You secure volunteers and fill the bins at your event; Goodwill picks them up at end of event
- Goodwill counts the bins. Your organization receives payment for the total number collected 3-4 weeks after date of pickup
What items should be collected?
Goodwill can accept the following on a paid basis: Clothing, shoes, handbags, jewelry, housewares, small appliances (toasters, blenders, mixers), toys, bicycles, sporting goods, tools, books, collectibles, antiques, holiday decor and costumes, household electronics, ink cartridges, computers and computer equipment/accessories (working and non-working)
What items cannot be collected?
Goodwill is not able to accept food, firearms, ammunition, explosives (including fireworks), chemicals, hazardous materials or biohazards, mattresses, large appliances (ovens, washing machines, dryers, dishwashers), tube and projection televisions, tires, car seats, cribs and any other large equipment.
Are collected items tax deductible?
No. Technically speaking, the donation is to the participating organization, not Goodwill. However, if your organization is a nonprofit with a 501(c)(3) designation, you may be able to provide a donation receipt for tax deduction purposes. Check with your accounting department to see if your organization is able to do so.
Who is responsible for keeping donated items secure?
The participating organization has sole responsibility and liability for donations until the donated items are picked up by Goodwill.

Note: Qualifying organizations must be approved by Goodwill's management team and be able to provide a W-9 tax form
