Corporate Alliance Program


The objective of the CORPORATE ALLIANCE PROGRAM is to recognize those businesses and organizations which have made a significant investment in the programs and services that Goodwill offers to people with barriers to employment.

In 2017, Goodwill partnered with over 600 employers to place 1,425 people in jobs in the community.

In addition, dozens of local businesses and large corporations support Goodwill’s mission services through grants, gifts and in-kind contributions.


PCB_premier-truckREMIER partners will receive individualized recognition by having their corporate ad prominently featured on the rear doors of THREE Goodwill trailers.

Trailer ad size: 95.5″ W x 85.5″ H

SUPPORTING partners will receive group recognition by having their corporate name listed on the rear doors of TWO Goodwill trailers.

Each Goodwill trailer travels an estimated 4,000 miles per year throughout Goodwill’s 15-county service area. These same trailers may also serve as an Attended Donation Station (ADS) in high-visibility locations in each of the communities Goodwill serves.

It is estimated that each trailer will generate a minimum of 800,000 impressions per year.

All levels receive:

  • Annual print advertisement in The News Tribune recognizing all Corporate Alliance partners.
  • Special Corporate Alliance recognition on the Goodwill website, Milgard Work Opportunity Center flat screens and in the annual report.
