Every donation that Goodwill receives helps fund programs and services to assist New Mexicans in finding jobs or accessing specialized social services.
So every time you donate, you create an opportunity for someone in New Mexico.
What Happens To My Donation?
Know Before You Donate
At Goodwill Industries of New Mexico, we’re NOT a for-profit business. We don’t hide behind the name of a nonprofit partnership that pays only pennies on the dollar for donations. Instead, we are a local nonprofit with thrift stores that exist to fund the programs and services we offer free to New Mexicans.
That means every time you make a donation or a purchase in one of our stores, you help someone secure community employment or gain access to social services.
Unfortunately, not all organizations have the same community-minded focus. Many donation bins in New Mexico with nonprofit designations, actually benefit for-profit businesses. That’s why it’s important to be informed before you make a donation.
100% of the money made from the sale of your donation stays with Goodwill and in the State of New Mexico. Plus, 89-cents of every dollar we spend is used to fund our programs and services.
