Reading Time: 2 minutes

The Good Will-Hinckley Heritage Society was created in 1996 to help provide future generations of needy youngsters with the opportunity to call Good Will-Hinckley their home. The Heritage Society recognizes any planned gift which is earmarked to benefit the Good Will-Hinckley program. If you have included Good Will-Hinckley in your estate plans or are interested in learning how you can participate, please contact, Wayne Lobley, VP Development Director, at 207-238-4280 or for more information.

Good Will-Hinckley has indeed been fortunate to have dedicated benefactors supporting our mission for over 100 years with gifts planned for the future. These “planned or deferred gifts” in the form of bequests, trusts, gift annuities, retirement funds, and life insurance policies have lasting impacts on Good Will-Hinckley.

Heritage Society History

The symbol of The Heritage Society is the original roundel, sculpted by Charles D. Hubbard in 1912 and represents Home, Education, Industry, Discipline, Recreation and Religion. 

In Rev. Hinckley’s view, a well-rounded boy or girl must have training in all aspects of these basic factors of life. It was his success not only in giving voice to this idea but in actuality working out a laboratory model on Good Will Farm that made him stand so tall with the child welfare experts in his day.

Rev. Hinckley said, “The circle is endless; and whatever comes to pass in the future the influence of Good Will can be nothing less than eternal. Nothing can put an end to influences which have gone forth from this Chapel, from these homes and educational structures.”
