Dr. Kim Williams

Dr. Kim Williams was born in Marietta, Georgia and grew up in Powder Springs. The daughter of Drs. Sid and Nell Williams, she was influenced by their involvement in education at an early age.

Dr. Kim attended Kennesaw Junior College, graduated from Life Chiropractic College with a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree in 1980. She also attained a Bachelor of Science from the University of New York in 1986 and her Master of Business Administration from American InterContinental University in Atlanta in 2001. After serving in several capacities at Life University from 1981 until 2002, Dr. Kim served as a faculty member, Director of Faculty Development and Vice President of Academic Affairs (Interim) at American InterContinental University from 2002 until 2010.

In 2010, Dr. Kim assumed the office of Chief Executive Officer of Life Foundation, Inc., an IRS-approved 501 C 3 non-profit organization founded in 1965.

She repositioned the organization, established a new mission statement, formed new initiatives, created donor brochures, officiated website development, realigned investment strategy and launched fund raising activities.

Under Dr. Kim’s direction, money was raised for grants which are given twice a year (depending upon donations, of course) to college students who qualify for the Founders Grant or the Lasting Purpose Grant. Applications can be found on the website at lifefoundationsonline.org.

Dr. Kim also initiated two programs for college students known as Coats & Care for College Students (CCCS) and Bibles, Books and Bundles (BBB). Coats are distributed to students who need them under the umbrella of CCCS. Bibles, self-help books and other necessities such as toiletries, pens, blankets and even games are distributed to students in the Atlanta area under the BBB program.

Dr. Kim soon realized that she needed someone experienced in fund raising to help raise funds for these initiatives. After a diligent search, Dr. Kim employed Eddie McAshan as the Coordinator of Major Gifts and Donations for Life Foundation. Mr. McAshan, the first African-American athlete to play at Georgia Institute of Technology, was experienced in grant writing, fund raising, and public relations. This proved to be an excellent match as Eddie joined the Life Foundation team and embarked upon a campaign to secure donations for the Foundation’s Bibles, Books and Bundles program for college students, as well as corporate cash donations.

Mr. McAshan wholeheartedly supports the Foundation’s new mission statement of “providing life enhancing activities and services to the community in the essential areas of education, wellness, leadership skills and spiritual growth…”

Life Foundation, Inc. has a team of employees dedicated to achieving this mission. Dr. Kim is confident that Life Foundation, Inc. will have a positive and profound influence on the area’s educational environment as “we identify leaders and invest in their future…one college student at a time.”
