Goodwill of the Olympics and Rainier Region

Since 1902, Goodwill’s concept of building job skills has provided people of all ages and backgrounds a chance to succeed. Goodwill of the Olympics and Rainier Region opened in 1921 as the 19th Goodwill in the United States, offering its own job training and placement services. Goodwill is a unique, self-supporting 501(c)3 nonprofit that utilizes donations sold in its 37 stores across a 15-county service area to fund its programs. Additional funding comes from public and private grants, and generous financial contributions from the community.

More than 91% of Goodwill's expenses supports mission services. Last year alone we provided services to nearly 9,500 people received services. Goodwill placed more than 1,400 people in jobs – either at Goodwill or at over 1,300 organizations in the community. Placing 1,400 people in jobs last year saves the local economy $20 million in discontinued welfare and disability payments. Third party funding helps maintain many of these skills training and educational programs, but many participants need scholarships. Community donations fuel these scholarships and help keep Goodwill's mission alive. Visit Goodwill Heritage Foundation for more information. 

Goodwill has consistently received the highest endorsement from CARF – the National Rehabilitation Accreditation Commission – since 1973. Goodwill of the Olympics and Rainier Region operates in 15 counties in Western and Southcentral Washington, covering nearly the entire Olympic Peninsula (except Kitsap County), south to Longview, east to Yakima and Ellensburg, along with a portion of South King County.
