How Goodwill gathered audience insights
and spiked nationwide donations

Goodwill knew that in order to inspire donations around the country, it would have to raise brand awareness on a local level. The nation-wide nonprofit looked to GroundTruth’s location technology to identify and engage with groups of people who were likely to donate. Together, Goodwill honed in on the demographics—by location—with the highest affinity for Goodwill donations, dramatically increasing donation center visits across the country.
