Annual Award Winners

During Goodwill Industries Week (the first full week of May), Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida selects our top clients, participants, and supporters. Throughout the rest of the year we celebrate our Breakthrough Graduate, Achiever, Employer, Business, Volunteer and Philanthropist of the Year in print and social media. The recognition culminates in the annual Breakthrough Awards presentation at the Festival of Trees Preview Party in November/December.

(Annual Reports run a year behind example: 2018 will come out in 2019)
