GOODWILL FUNDRIVE

Partner with us and earn cash for your group!

 

 

THE IDEA IS SIMPLE

  • You invite people to donate items to Goodwill in the name of your organization.
  • We station a collection team in your area or collection bins on your campus.
  • Earn community service hours for your students.
  • We pay you cash!

 

 

 

STEP 1:

SCHEDULE A FUNDRIVE

  • You can host a one-day event with a Goodwill collection team and truck stationed in your area.
  • Or you can host a week-or month-long campaign with Goodwill collection bins placed on your campus.
  • Contact Goodwill's fundraising department with the date, time and location of your organization's drive.

 

 

STEP 2:

PROMOTE THE FUNDRIVE

  • Start inviting members of your community to drop off donation items at your location during your drive.
  • You may also choose to collect donated items yourself from their homes or businesses.
  • We provide special Goodwill FunDrive collection bags you may distribute.
  • By request, we can also supply you with customizable marketing materials in electronic form and a template for a press release to announce your event to local media.
  • Post to social media and send emails to anyone on your list.

 

 

 

STEP 3:

ENERGIZE YOUR GROUP

Schedule a Goodwill FunDrive kickoff meeting with your organization. Explain the three ways the FunDrive will make a difference:
 

  1. Raise money for your organization!
  2. Help people with barriers to employment get work throughout the community!
  3. Clear out the clutter!

 

FunDrive is a chance to team build with each other and connect with the community. It should be FUN!

  • Encourage friendly competition for most collected items between departments
  • Offer incentives or prizes (days off, prizes, party, dress-down days, etc.)

 

 

STEP 4:

CELEBRATE

  • Announce the results. Thank the donors with an email, card, certificate or gift.
  • Host a party to celebrate the success of the FunDrive.
  • Acknowledge the members of your organization for their participation and achievement.

 

 

Remind your members and donors of your mission and Goodwill's mission:

  • To provide training, skills and services to people with barriers
    to employment.
