Goodwill Round Up

There’s something new coming to a Goodwill near you! Every time you shop at your local Goodwill, you have the chance to make a difference and now it’s easier than ever to help Albertans with disabilities find meaningful employment.

What Is Goodwill Round Up?

At checkout, you will have the opportunity to Round UP your purchase to the nearest dollar, but you might be wondering; “where will that extra money go?” GREAT QUESTION! Every cent you donate through our Round UP program will go directly towards our mission. This adds to the 89 cent of every dollar you’ve already donated by shopping in our stores. This means more resources to help Albertans with disabilities train; find; and gain, meaningful employment in our community. At Goodwill, your CHANGE will CHANGE a life!
