Goodwill Industries of Sacramento Valley & Northern Nevada, Inc. was established in Sacramento in 1933. Over the next 77 years, the organization housed itself in a number of quarters – a church, an abandoned firehouse, a stately home and finally in 1965, in its own building.
Goodwill is a community based non-profit organization that provides jobs for the disabled, disadvantaged, and disenfranchised in Sacramento Valley & Northern Nevada. We put people to work in their own communities, helping to build self-sufficiency and human dignity.
Today, Goodwill employs over 2,700 people. Over 90 percent of total revenues are dedicated to job training, mission related activities, and mission related payroll. Clearly, Goodwill provides our donors, consumers, customers and communities with a large return on their investment.
