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.
