About Us

Our Mission

Our Mission

Delivering Good unites retailers, manufacturers, foundations, and individuals to provide people impacted by poverty and tragedy with new
merchandise, effectively distributed through a network of community partners to offer hope, dignity and self-esteem to at-risk children, families,
and individuals.

Our Vision

A more equitable world in which children, adults and families facing economic, medical, social, and environmental challenges have the useful items that they need and value, including clothing, home goods, toys, furniture, shoes, books, and other consumer products, to overcome adversity and help reach their full potential.

What We Do

Who We Help

Delivering Good helps families and individuals dealing with a wide range of social challenges like poverty, homelessness, workforce reentry, and foster care as well as those impacted by natural disasters.

Our Impact

Since our founding, more than $3 billion in donated products have been distributed through our network of community partners, serving individuals and families affected by poverty and disaster across the US and beyond.


Delivering Good provides companies with a sustainable solution for their excess merchandise that puts it in the hands of people in need instead of in landfills.
