Addressing Email Hoax: Mark Curran is not the CEO and owner of Goodwill

October 29, 2013

Mark Curran is not the CEO and owner of Goodwill.

Several variations of a hoax email called Think Before You Donate claim that Mark Curran is the CEO and owner of Goodwill earning 2.3 million a year. We want to set the record straight - Mark Curran has never owned Goodwill or worked for Goodwill.

Please note that Jim Gibbons is the actual CEO of Goodwill Industries International and reports to a volunteer Board of Directors. Ron Kratofil is the President & CEO of Goodwill Keystone Area and reports to a volunteer Board of Directors.

Goodwill Keystone Area is a non-profit organization. Goodwill collects and sells donated items in 35 stores in 22 counties in central and southeastern Pennsylvania to help people with disabilities and other barriers become more independent and connected to community. Many of the programs and services focus on job training and supportive services for employment. We believe that work has the power to transform lives and build community.

The mission of Goodwill Keystone Area is to support persons with disabilities and other barriers to independence in achieving their fullest potential as workers and as members of the broader community.
