Foundation

For more than 40 years, the Goodwill Foundation of Central & Southern Indiana has been an integral part of our Goodwill’s support for individuals and families. Through the Foundation, Goodwill raises money from individuals, corporations and private foundations and oversees an endowment of more than $30 million – a source of funds used primarily to help develop and launch new operations and services to enhance Goodwill’s mission-related impact.

Goodwill Foundation of Central & Southern Indiana

The interest generated by Goodwill’s endowment provides funding for programs within Goodwill of Central & Southern Indiana and its related entities, Goodwill Education Initiatives and GW Commercial Services. While the retail stores continue to be Goodwill’s financial engine, the Foundation fosters expansion and innovation to tackle community challenges, allowing Goodwill to create and improve services that move individuals and families towards personal, educational and vocational success and economic self-sufficiency.

The Foundation falls within Goodwill’s Office of Community Engagement and is led by Kyle E. Lanham, Vice President for Community Engagement and Chief Advancement Officer. Go here to see a list of the Foundation’s board of directors.

Frequently asked questions

Why does Goodwill have a Foundation?

The Foundation is a source of capital and seed money for new initiatives and for applied research and development to enhance the accomplishment of Goodwill’s mission and increase its impact in central and southern Indiana. We need the sustained efforts of our Foundation to attract philanthropic dollars – in the form of cash, stocks and bonds, charitable estate bequests and trusts, and other planned gifts – both to fund current services and to further build an endowment that guarantees future Goodwill services.

Do you get financial help from the government?

No. We have applied for and are awarded grants by government agencies, but the Foundation does not receive regular government funding.

Does Goodwill’s Foundation make grants to nonprofit organizations in the community?

No. The Goodwill Industries Foundation solely supports the programs and initiatives of Goodwill of Central & Southern Indiana and its related entities. No grants are given to other organizations or to individuals.

Do all of the financial contributions you receive stay in our local area?

Yes. Contributions made to Goodwill support programs and services provided by Goodwill and its related entities, Goodwill Education Initiatives and GW Commercial Services, in 39 central Indiana counties.

History

Rev. Howard Lytle, the first Executive Director of Goodwill, established Goodwill as an important organization in the community and laid the groundwork for volunteer leadership that is so important to Goodwill today. When Alan McNeil took over in 1969, he sought to further the organization’s mission and continue the legacy of his predecessor. After expanding Goodwill’s retail stores beyond Indianapolis, McNeil led a campaign to raise funds for the organization. Being a keen businessman with his eye on Goodwill’s future, he proposed the establishment of the Goodwill Foundation, a vehicle that would allow the board to invest in various financial assets that could fund new initiatives. After much planning, the Foundation was approved as the first of its kind for Goodwills nationwide.

On November 29, 1971, distinguished community leaders met to sign the articles of incorporation and appoint the first board of directors for the Goodwill Foundation. Its stated mission was to provide the funds to support Goodwill’s innovative approach toward providing jobs and educational opportunities. This included establishing and expanding employment services and awarding internships to promising students interested in careers related to Goodwill’s work.

Russell Hirschman served as the first president of the Goodwill Foundation, a role he held for nine years. His son, Frank, served on the Foundation Board from 1998 until his death in 2009. Frank’s son, John, has continued the family legacy of service on the Foundation’s board since 2007. William A. Dyer, who served Goodwill for more than 25 years, was the Foundation’s second chair. During his tenure, he doubled assets and introduced many friends to the work of Goodwill. Jack Dustman took over as chair of the board in 1986, after chairing the national Goodwill Board from 1979-1980. Until his death in 2006, he tirelessly raised funds for the Foundation and set up an endowment fund to provide internships to students interested in sales, marketing, development or general management. The Jack Dustman Society honors Jack’s memory by recognizing individuals who have supported Goodwill with a planned or outright gift of $50,000 or more.

The Foundation continued to provide critical support for new Goodwill initiatives throughout the 2000’s, including Indianapolis Metropolitan High School (2004), The Excel Center (its first location opened in 2010) and Nurse-Family Partnership (2011). In 2015, the Foundation became part of Goodwill’s newly formed Office of Community Engagement, combining the talents of Goodwill’s fundraising, business development and community outreach staff in order to better serve all constituents, including individuals, corporations, community partners, foundations and others.
