Goodwill Association

What is Goodwill?

The Goodwill Association is 100% funded by staff and faculty contributions with the primary purpose of creating a culture of Exceptional Care at Utah Valley University.

Employees working at the Utah Technical College created the Goodwill Association over 40 years ago. Today, Goodwill sends get well wishes to UVU employees who experience hospital stays, the loss of a family member or pet, a graduation with a higher education degree, a birth/adoption, or a wedding. That special Goodwill touch tells UVU employees that someone cares. Currently, there are 900+ Goodwill members/supporters.

The membership dues are only $.50 per pay period or $12 per year. Payroll deduction is available and utilized in most all cases. The cost has not changed in the past 25 years.

How it Works

  • The death of an employee’s family member (Grandparent, parent, sibling, spouse, child (including miscarriages), or grandchild; in-law, foster, or step of the relationships listed).

  • Serious illness of an employee resulting in 3 days in the hospital or missing 10 or more work days.

  • Death of a UVU retiree.

  • Death of an employee’s pet.

  • An employee’s graduation with a higher education degree (Associate’s, Bachelor’s, Master’s, Doctorate).

  • An employee’s birth or adoption of a child.

  • An employee’s wedding.
