"Think Before You Donate" Rumors
About Goodwill Are False
Sadly, a negative email titled “Think Before You Donate” has re-surfaced. This email contains false and misleading information regarding Goodwill Industries International (GII) and several other nonprofit organizations. The rumors are being spread via email and social media.
At Goodwill, we definitely encourage you to “think before you donate” and to learn as much as you can about the charities you’d like to support. We know that you want to be certain the organization you choose to support uses its revenue for charitable purposes that support a mission you stand behind.
Contrary to the “Think Before You Donate” message, the current Chief Executive Officer of Goodwill Industries International (GII) is Jim Gibbons, not Mark Curran. Curran has never been associated with the Goodwill enterprise.
Additional information about this false and misleading message is available through www.snopes.com.

- Charity Navigator (It is the nation's largest independent charity evaluator and leading donor advocate)
- GuideStar (GuideStar is a public charity that gathers and disseminates information about every IRS-registered nonprofit organization)
Thank you for supporting Goodwill. Your purchases, donations, partnerships, and financial contributions really do help us build better communities and help local residents reach their goal of greater self-sufficiency.

The new Goodwill store and donation center located at 2111 McCoy Road, in the Prairie Square shopping center [map], is now open! Take a virtual tour and then head on over to see it in person!
“We’re so happy to be returning to Sun Prairie,” said Barbara Leslie, President and CEO of Goodwill Industries of South Central Wisconsin. “Our site will offer area residents an opportunity to purchase quality merchandise at affordable prices and help our planet by donating their unwanted goods. Instead of being placed in a landfill, these items will be used to generate revenue for our life-changing services for people with disabilities or other challenges.”
The Sun Prairie donation center gladly accepts all permissible items except large furniture. Residents living within the city limits of Sun Prairie who have large pieces of furniture to donate may simply call 608-246-3150 to learn about Goodwill’s free home pickup service. Some restrictions may apply. The home pickup service is also available to residents living within the city limits of Madison, Fitchburg, or Middleton.
The donation center’s initial hours are 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The store’s hours are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., on Sunday. Hours are subject to change.
