"Think Before You Donate" Rumors

About Goodwill Are False

rumor busterSadly, 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. To learn about GII, click here. Additional information about GII and information about other organizations included in the rumor is available through:

- 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)
