Our Motivation


When our own small nonprofit found it financially difficult to afford the planned giving tools sold by others, we decided to create a high-quality, less expensive alternative.  With the help of multiple attorneys and a team of top-notch software developers, we are now able to offer churches and nonprofits a tool as good as any on the market (we think better!) at an affordable price.


While we love working with nonprofits of all sizes, we especially have a heart for creating affordable tools for small and mid-size nonprofits.


We also excel in creating tools for multi-unit nonprofits. These include regional or national organizations with chapters, community foundations that resource local nonprofits, religious denominations and their churches, etc. Providing planned giving tools can often be cost-prohibitive, but this approach allows units to access planned giving tools in a way that is both effective and affordable.

Why Good Raising?


We created Good Raising to increase the number of people with wills and to provide an additional opportunity for supporters to help churches and nonprofits fulfill their mission.
There are enormous needs and tremendous opportunities all around us.  Our hope is that Faith Wills and Will for Good will be new sources of funding that help churches and nonprofits sustain and expand their impact.
At the same time, the organization is helping its members complete a task that every adult needs to complete, regardless of whether or not they choose to leave a gift in their will to the organization.  The absence of a will often leads to unnecessary stress and difficulties for grieving families.  Good Raising makes completing this task much easier and free.
There is absolutely no pressure to leave something to the church or nonprofit.
Everyone wins.

The Founder

Don Woolley


Will for Good is a venture borne of my own experience and frustrations. As a former pastor, I’ve seen, up close, the fallout of not having a will.  As the director of a nonprofit, I know that we don’t do enough to make it easy for donors to leave us bequests. I hope Will for Good increases the number of people with wills, increases the number of people leaving bequests to nonprofits, and helps nonprofits to sustain and expand their work. 

I’m blessed to have an amazing wife and two great sons. As a family, we’ve lived in Kentucky, Ohio, and Florida, but most of our time has been in the Mobile, Alabama area. A few years ago, we moved to Wyoming to be closer to the things we love to do – camping, kayaking, hiking, and attempted skiing. We spend as much time as we can in the Tetons. 


I’m originally from Arkansas, attended the University of Arkansas, and was a chemical engineer for six years, working in the paper industry. Later, I completed an M.Div. from Asbury Seminary, followed by PhD in Practical Theology.

I’m grateful to serve as the national director of QuadW Missional Outreach. When we launched in 2008, we had no plans to expand beyond our own city of Mobile, Alabama. The QuadW Foundation gave us the opportunity to become an international program and I’ve been amazed and grateful to see the impact grow each year. I love the difference our programs make in the lives of young adults, our partners’ work, and the communities they serve

A Little More About Us

Good Raising was launched with the goal of providing online wills to help individuals without a will and to help churches and nonprofits increase the effectiveness of their planned giving program. We offer faithwills.com for churches and faith-based nonprofits and willforgood.com for any nonprofit.

Our products were developed with the help of numerous attorneys who graciously gave of their time to make this a reliable tool that addresses state’s differing requirements. We believe our products provide churches and nonprofits a new way to expand the opportunity of planned giving, including ALL your constituents.  By law, Good Raising offers no legal or financial advice to users. We recognize that online wills are not the best option for every individual and our product highlights circumstances where it is especially prudent to seek the services of a qualified attorney. Our hope is that Good Raising will be offered alongside the traditional services provided by attorneys. The win for all of us is that individuals complete a will and consider leaving a portion of their estate to the causes they care about.
