To support the mission of Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida by raising funds and other contributions that will enhance, expand, and ensure the longevity of the organization's mission and programs and services through annual funds, major/special gifts, and planned gifts.
To ensure that funds are available and set aside in perpetuity in order that the long term vision for programs and services can continue to grow and meet the needs of an ever increasing number of individuals within the five county area of Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Hendry and Glades.
Charitable gifts to the SWFL Goodwill Foundation give individuals like Savannah the opportunity to gain their independence and become productive members of our Southwest Florida community. Your gift immediately goes to help many like Savannah who are currently in our programs or are on a waiting list for placement.
The Pathways to Opportunity program serving our 18+ year old population.
The Strategic Plan for 2018 calls for the expanding Pathways to meet identified and increasing needs in Collier County. For instance, total start-up costs for The Collier Pathways to Opportunity program in year 1 is $252,000 to $382,000 (to include 2 accessible vans for the program) and annual costs up to $300,000. Your generous charitable investment toward Pathways to Opportunity helps us continue to build, expand and sustain the independence and life exploration opportunities for many young adults who have disabilities or disadvantages that present barriers to an enriched and fulfilling life.
The Foundation accepts gifts of cash, credit cards and appreciated securities to help advance our mission and much needed education and training programs like Pathways to Opportunity and Pathways to Work.
