Goodwill Industries of Arkansas

Goodwill Industries was brought to Arkansas in 1927 by Charles E. Moyer, Mayor of Little Rock. A year later, Dr. Edgar J. Helms, founder of Goodwill Industries, visited Little Rock and approved of what he saw. Currently, Goodwill Industries of Arkansas has several rehabilitation services, 15 retail stores and two attended donation stations.
As with Goodwill Industries in other states, Goodwill Arkansas derive most of their revenue from the sales of donated items. From clothes and couches to cars and trucks – donations received by Goodwill Industries will be used to turn around the lives of disadvantaged people so that they can work to improve their own lives.
At the start of 2005 the rules governing tax deductions on donated vehicles changed. Now, the value of a donated vehicle is no longer determined by yourself, but is based on how much money the charity received for its resale. After donating a car, you will usually receive a written document within 30 days informing you of how much money the charity received from the sale of your car and the amount that you can claim as a tax deduction as a result.
The donation of cars and trucks allows Goodwill Industries of Arkansas to create programs that enable disadvantaged people attain their highest potential with vocational training, employment schemes, and work placement services. By providing on the job training they also help people with disabilities reach their goals and improve their working conditions.
One particular program at Goodwill Arkansas is their Supported Employment program. This is designed to train individuals with a severe disability to be able to work in a competitive work environment. Programs like these are helped by donations from people like you, as well as organizations like Charity Dispatch. Charity Dispatch is an organization that can help you process your vehicle donation.
