Every donation to Goodwill Amity helps transform lives through the power of work. When you donate funds, goods or purchase items at one of our thrift stores, you are helping people access support services to enter or re-enter the workforce so they can achieve financial security for themselves and their families.

Donate Funds

Your financial donation will support those in our community who often face the most barriers to employment such as newcomers seeking Canadian experience, youth looking for their first job, people with disabilities, women and those displaced by Covid.

Your funds will provide:

  • Access to job coaching
  • Work placements
  • Training and skills development
  • Mental health and basic needs supports

Each time you donate to Goodwill, you support a local charity that changes lives and impacts communities in Hamilton and Halton.

The services your donations fund include skills training, employment and job creation so people can find meaningful work.
