We at Goodwill Industries of Kentucky are humbled by the unsolicited $10 million donation from writer and philanthropist MacKenzie Scott and so very grateful for her belief in our mission to help Kentuckians with significant life challenges improve their quality of life through employment.
The donation, part of $4.1 billion that she has donated amid the pandemic to nearly 400 organizations, is the largest single donation we’ve received in our nearly 100 years.
