The Jesse Parker Williams Foundation, Inc. is a private charitable foundation established in 1992.
The Foundation traces its origins to Cora Best Taylor Williams’ bequest in 1924 establishing the Jesse Parker Williams Hospital to honor her late husband. Her intention was to relieve human suffering and distress, and her specific direction was to assist women and children with medical care.
The mission of the Jesse Parker Williams Foundation is to support highly effective organizations that emphasize preventative, comprehensive health opportunities and enhance access to health services for women and children. We focus especially on those serving populations with limited financial means and predominately in the five-county metropolitan Atlanta area (Fulton, DeKalb, Cobb, Gwinnett and Clayton.)
