Haydn Williams

Ambassador F. Haydn Williams served as President of The Asia Foundation from 1964-1989. In honor of the late ambassador, the Foundation established the Haydn Williams Legacy Society to recognize generous donors who have given or made plans to give funds from their estate to expand income-generating funds that provide long-lasting support for the Foundation’s programs. Together, these critical funds serve as The Asia Foundation’s Endowment Fund, established through the leadership and generosity of select trustees, volunteers, donors, and staff.

A robust Haydn Williams Legacy Society provides the Foundation flexibility to pilot and innovate new programs, as well as to continue to deliver life-enriching programs during economic downturns, when this work is most critical. By remembering The Asia Foundation in your estate planning, you reaffirm that change can only start with you.
