Converting donated goods into keys that open doors to employment.
A community that values the power of work for all citizens as a key to the maximization of abundant living.
The Power of Work
We believe everyone has talent and, regardless of situation, should have access to employment. We love teaching people skills and putting them in position to hear those life-changing words: “You’re hired.”
We achieve our mission thanks to your support and by administering programs that develop residents of Carroll County and Frederick County, Md.
Goodwill Industries of Monocacy Valley (GIMV), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is one of 157 local, autonomous organizations of Goodwill Industries International. Your monetary and physical donations put into action our passion to help people overcome adversity and progress on the road to independence. You can trust us to steward the resources you contribute: Forbes ranked Goodwill No. 14 in its “America’s Top Charities 2018” article, and Charity Watch graded Goodwill with an “A.”
Your donations also qualify as tax deductions (consult your individual tax advisor for guidance).
Each time you donate to GIMV or purchase something from our online or in-person stores, you provide the fuel for us to:
- activate a holistic personal development program that helps each client learn hands-on skills, expand know-how, improve one or more aspects of personal life, and become more self-sufficient.
- directly employ hundreds of local residents, providing them a financial foundation and reducing reliance on government assistance.
- partner with area businesses to employ graduates of our training programs.
- lead the community as a major recycler of textiles, expanding the life of use for thousands of products and articles of clothing that otherwise may have been destined for landfills.
Our staff works in our headquarters in the city of Frederick and in our employment resource center in Westminster. Our associates — many of whom participate in or have graduated from our workforce development program — operate Goodwill retail stores and donation centers at eight locations across our two counties. A leadership team oversees day-to-day operations and reports to a volunteer board of directors, which sets policy and organizational direction.
