Second Chances for Bay Area People
Give the Gift of Opportunity
September is National Workforce Development Month and we celebrate our job training and placement programs that have provided new skills and employment opportunities to hundreds of local people each year. Please support our organization in continuing to provide free access to these programs. As a social enterprise, SF Goodwill is unlike typical nonprofits, who rely almost exclusively on philanthropic contributions. We earn 75% of what we need to operate. With the "shelter-in-place" orders in our three-county service area, this critical revenue stream suddenly and unexpectedly vanished, putting over 500 jobs in jeopardy. As we begin to reopen select retail stores and donation sites we will need your help to sustain our mission to create second chances through training and the dignity of work. Bay Area people rely on our organization for free career services and training programs. Your generous gift today will ensure some of our most vulnerable residents and neighbors can weather this public health crisis.
