Help us make a difference

All made possible by you.

When you thrift or donate at Goodwill of Orange County, you are helping people in the community find meaningful career opportunities and reach their highest level of independence.  More than 94 cents of every dollar spent goes to directly funding our workforce development programs that drive our mission.

Empower a world with equal access to employment.

We all deserve a chance to grow with valuable opportunities and the confidence that we’re not alone. Thanks to your help, we’re creating an inclusive and caring community for everyone.

Helping reshape Orange County one opportunity at a time.
