Donate to Rappahannock Goodwill Industries
Giving to Rappahannock Goodwill Industries is a personal experience. More than making a financial commitment, donors choose to help meet human needs. There are many giving opportunities and many ways to give. No two gifts are exactly alike. Each is a personal expression of each donor, and Goodwill helps tailor giving to suit the individual donor’s desires.
If you are interested in finding out more about how you can donate to Goodwill, we encourage you to continue to explore this section of our web site and see which giving opportunity is right for you. There is nothing more powerful than giving a gift to someone in need.
Rappahannock Goodwill Industries is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit charitable organization and you can request a copy of our IRS Form 990 at any time from our main office in Fredericksburg.
When you give financially to Rappahannock Goodwill, you are helping to assist people who need employment – particularly those who have a barrier that is preventing them from working and leading a productive life.
Sometimes we take for granted the education, skills, and training we have that allow us to live and work independently every day. RGI helps those who, for a variety of reasons, need assistance in finding employment.

Donate your time
Like computers? Want to do your part to help all people in our community find a job? Goodwill provides free computer skills and job search skills training to anyone who needs it as they seek employment. This is where you come in. Rappahannock Goodwill Job Help Centers are seeking individuals with great communication skills and experience using computers to navigate today’s job market. With your help, we can serve even more people and lower the unemployment rate in our area.
We are particularly in need of volunteers to assist participants with their work in the computer lab, and also to help with some administrative work (doing exit interviews by phone, answering questions, and various copying and filing tasks). The ideal volunteer will be a self-starter, familiar with basic computer operation and internet navigation, and comfortable communicating with people from all walks of life.
We have opportunities available at all of our Job Help Center locations – in downtown Fredericksburg, North Stafford, Culpeper, and Lee’s Hill.
