Well over a century ago, Goodwill’s founder, Dr. Edgar J. Helms, was divinely inspired to approach the problem of poverty from a different perspective. Recognizing that charitable handouts only temporarily relieved the pain of the poor, Dr. Helms conceived of an innovative method to teach people employable skills by hiring them to repair donated goods. Acting on his vision, Dr. Helms created training programs for high demand occupations that endowed participants with middle skills and career pathways out of poverty. Dr. Helms helped low wealth citizens develop their God-given gifts and secure a greater slice of the American Dream. Two years ago, it was with this historic precedent in mind that our board and staff leadership began to map out plans for the future of Goodwill of Middle Georgia and the CSRA. And In 2017, months of vigorous work and thoughtful planning culminated in the launch of our 2020 Strategic Plan (www.goodwillworks. org/Resources/1841.pdf), the most ambitious and enterprising in our history. As we embarked on the first of a four-year journey to elevate our mission to new levels of impact, a key strategic initiative was to lay the groundwork for the Hand Up Campaign. A comprehensive fundraising initiative, the Hand Up Campaign will generate millions of dollars to expand our Helms College career education model and related social enterprises

ushering in a new era of growth in Aiken, Augusta, Lake Oconee and Macon. Throughout 2017, key community leaders in each of these service regions worked behind the scenes on our behalf, volunteering their time to help craft each area’s case for support, identify prospective donors, and begin to spread awareness and cultivate local interest. (To learn more about the steering committees and campaign initiatives for each region see pages 4-5.) True to Dr. Helms’ remarkable legacy, our Goodwill is committed to adapting to ever-changing needs and economic circumstances in our community. To continue to thrive and be relevant, we must continually seek new and innovative opportunities to grow our capacity to serve. Such transformative initiatives will require significant philanthropic support from individuals, businesses and foundations in our community and beyond. As the result of Dr. Edgar J. Helms’ faith, vision and perseverance, the Goodwill movement has given millions of people a chance to change their lives and experience “abundant living”. We are grateful to the many donors, patrons, volunteers and Goodwill employees that accomplish the work of Goodwill. We invite you to join us on the journey to 2020. Together, we will continue to build lives, families and communities one career at a time.

HAND UP CAMPAIGN Goodwill’s Case for Investment in Helms College The founder of Goodwill Industries, Dr. Edgar J. Helms, believed everyone had a right to pursue the dignity of work and abundant living, often saying people living in poverty deserved a hand up, rather than a hand out. This was the inspiration for Goodwill’s Hand Up Campaign, a comprehensive fundraising initiative to enhance and expand our continuum of Helms College education and career services and applied learning business enterprises. As these pages show, the Campaign’s priorities are centralized in four strategic regions, each guided by local employers and community leaders. A key component of Goodwill’s 2020 Strategic Plan, the Hand Up Campaign ultimately will position Goodwill for global expansion of Helms College as a model for effecting lasting social and economic change.
