Goodwill is financially backed by a huge network of thrift (retail) stores that are also known to operate for non-profit making motives. Overall, the Company defies traditional distinctions and does not believe in achieving the usual bottom line figures and profits. Instead, the resources, management as well as the employees of Goodwill find themselves accountable to the planet, people, and their performance. Goodwill functions as a widely spread network of community-based, independent organizations belonging to Venezuela, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea, Panama, Uruguay, Canada, the United States, and eight other nations. There are 163 local Goodwills in Canada and the USA alone!

Goodwill has expanded profusely after being founded in 1902. As per laid down figures, in the year 2014, Goodwill stores and other organizational resources had generated a whopping $5.59 billion in worldwide revenue. Out of the revenues thus generated, about 83 percent was directly spent on programs. The Group has managed to serve more than 37 million people in 2015, with over 312,000 people being employed through the efforts of Goodwill.

In current times, Goodwill is certainly a name to reckon with as a well-managed social service enterprise that provides plentiful job opportunities and trains and rehabilitates people with limitations pertaining to their employment status. It is a helpful resource that never fails to offer temporary assistance for those with depleted means.

As of July 2011, 164 full-fledged Goodwill members were operational in Canada and United States. Most of these stores are in the form of independent social enterprises that have regional Goodwill stores and several job training programs to their credit.
