Good Will - Hinckley we change lives
“We Change Lives.”
And With Your Help, We Can Do Even More!
Dear Alumni and Friends of Good Will - Hinckley,
Three years ago your Good Will - Hinckley began an ambitious Capital Campaign Project to provide the funds to renovate the Moody School, cottages and other buildings on the campus. The project goal was $10,000,000. Yes Ten Million Dollars, the largest campaign in the history of Good Will - Hinckley.
Early progress and a bridge loan allowed us to move forward with the major renovation and addition project of the Moody School. This was completed in 2015 and the students moved in that fall. The school continues to grow and fulfill the Good Will Idea of providing a helping hand to young men and women in need. This year there are nearly 150 students enrolled, including 34 graduates of the Class of 2017.
We have also been able to reopen two cottages and the third floor of Vickers Hall providing a home for up to 30 young people attending GWH programs.
The campaign itself is nearing completion with nearly $9,500,000 of the $10,000,000 goal received or pledged. A big part of this is a match gift from the Harold Alfond Foundation. They have generously pledged Five and a Half Million Dollars to the campaign, provided we raise the other four and a half million.
When completed the campaign have funded the Moody School renovation, a One Million Dollar Maintenance endowment, and will also provide us with nearly One Million Dollars in capital improvement funds to restore cottages and other Good Will buildings.
This will allow us to repair facilities and open more cottages to continue the legacy of Good Will - Hinckley to provide a home and helping hand to boys and girls in need. (You can learn more about the work of Good Will - Hinckley on our Programs Page)
But… this will only happen if we are able to complete the campaign. GWH needs your help!
With everyone pitching in, we will meet this goal and secure the future of the Good Will Idea!
Please help Good Will reach this goal and change more lives.
