I lost my donation receipt. Will Goodwill send another as a replacement?
Unfortunately, Goodwill does not maintain records of individual donations and will be unable to replace a lost receipt. Please save your receipts with your current year tax records to ensure you will be able to claim your donation as a deduction.
Does Goodwill provide free goods or monetary donations to other organizations/causes?
Goodwill changes the lives of some 50,000 people annually in the San Antonio, Laredo, New Braunfels and Seguin communities. Through donations and shopping in Goodwill stores, our educational programs and services that assist people in finding better jobs and build careers are funded. Due to the strong need for these services, we are unable to make any cash and/or gift in kind donations to other organizations.
