Shopgoodwill.com is the first and only internet auction site run by a nonprofit organization. Goodwill of Orange County started shopgoodwill.com in 1999 and since that time, the site has earned more than 179 million dollars to fund Goodwill’s job training and community-based programs for people with disabilities, those who lack education or work experience and others facing challenges to finding employment. The items on the site include rare and valuable art, musical instruments and other unique items.
Goodwill provided career and community services to more than 4.2 million people last year and demand for our services continues to grow each year. It is our obligation to get the most value of every Goodwill donation so we can provide more services to people who need them in our local communities. Some donated items are more suited for sale in an online marketplace rather than inside a store.
