Description/Comments:

Employment strengthens communities at all levels.

Working citizens provide tax revenue and are able to purchase goods and services from businesses in the community. Businesses run at top-efficiency when full staffed with trained and motivated employees. When its citizens are employed, the government is able to re-direct tax collars to provide fundamental community services, rather than finance public assistance.

Goodwill Industries of Hawaii provides Mission Services, Commercial Services, and Community Services, to strengthen Hawaii's communities through the power of work.

About Goodwill
Goodwill Industries of Hawaii, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation that helps people with employment barriers to reach their full potential and become self-sufficient.

Since 1959, we have provided job placement, career development, education, training, employment and support services for people throughout the state. Over 10,000 Hawaii residents each year have benefitted from Goodwill's services, and thousands have found employment in our community.



Philosophy
For more than 100 years, Goodwill Industries has championed a philosophy of community service through the power of work. In 1902, the founder of this philosophy, Reverend Edgar J. Helms, a Methodist Minister, took burlap bags into Boston's wealthier neighborhoods collecting donations. He invited community residents with disabilities and other disadvantages to help repair and sell the donations and used the revenue made through the sales to pay the workers. This philosophy is evident throughout Hawaii's Goodwill, and in Goodwills throughout the world.

Goodwill Industries International
Goodwill Industries of Hawaii (GIH) is an autonomous, dues-paying member of Goodwill Industries International, a growing network of Goodwill organizations throughout the world. There are currently 183 full member Goodwill organizations in the United States and Canada. Since the organization's founding in 1902, Goodwill has helped more than 9 million people. Globally, Goodwill Industries International announced its 21st Century Initiative to serve 20 million people by the year 2020.

Goodwill Leadership and Accreditation
Goodwill is led by a volunteer Board of Directors comprised of civic and business leaders from the community. Goodwill has been fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for more than 30 years, and is certified by NISH. Goodwill maintains active membership in the National Rehabilitation Association, Hawaii Alliance of Nonprofit Organizations, Retail Merchants of Hawaii, Chamber of Commerce of Hawaii, Aloha United Way, Hawaii Employers Council, West Oahu Economic Development Association, and the Kapolei Chamber of Commerce.

Funding and Revenue
Goodwill is rare among not-for-profit agencies because most of its revenue is earned. Our unique, self-sustaining system enables us to serve thousands in Hawaii each year.

Goodwill Industries of Hawaii is funded through:
  • Retail sales at our community stores
  • Service contracts (in competition with private enterprise)
  • City, state and federal job training grants
  • Support from individuals and corporations
