GSC supports its mission of “Transforming lives through the Power of Work” with proceeds generated from 67 retail stores and 42 attended donation centers. Charity Navigator, an independent charity evaluator has awarded GSC its highest four-star ranking for 10 consecutive years; largely due to the fact GSC spends 92 percent of its budget on programs and services. Committed to caring for the earth, last year GSC diverted 25.4 million pounds of electronics, paper, and textiles from landfills. Goodwill is Good For Everyone! dgar James Helms (1863-1942), a man admired for his uncommon character and entrepreneurial vision, is credited as the founder of the movement that would grow into Goodwill Industries®. Helms was born near Malone, NY, on January 19, 1863. As a young man, he tried his hand at law and newspaper publishing, but felt called to the ministry. In 1889, he enrolled in Boston University Theological School. Helms and two fellow students requested that the City Missionary Society support them in opening a full-scale settlement house in the North End.
