Q: How are the services funded?

A: Easter Seals-Goodwill Northern Rocky Mountain receives funding from Goodwill retail sales, government contracts, private insurers, grants, fees-for-services and contributions. Contributed income provides start-up funding for new programs and helps cover the difference between the actual costs of providing services and what our clients can afford, thus offering access for more people.

Q: Do all Easter Seals and Goodwill organizations offer the same services?

A: All Easter Seals and Goodwill affiliates operate independently and autonomously. Services are based on the needs of the communities they serve and available resources.


Q: Easter Seals-Goodwill is a nonprofit organization. What does nonprofit mean?

A: Nonprofit primarily means tax-exempt. The agency does not pay taxes, and donors receive a tax deduction for gifts to the agency. Nonprofit means that there are no owners or shareholders. No one "profits" when the agency has more income than expense except our service recipients and the community. Any "excess revenue" is put back into our programs and services.
