How You Can Help!

Since 1985, the James Phillips Williams Memorial Foundation has been working to help struggling students be successful in schools throughout the Concho Valley and West Texas.  The Foundation provides training for teachers in Multisensory Programs for both reading and math, education for parents and administrators to all work for the good of the student.

The overall goal of the foundation is to give students with learning differences tools to be successful in life.  Will you please help us?  Any level of giving will help to continue the mission of the James Phillips Williams Memorial Foundation, thus, helping more families learn about dyslexia and other learning differences.

Any amount would be greatly appreciated, especially this year as we all move forward to the future and recover from the Pandemic.
