The Pittsburgh Foundation

Cora Hubbard Williams Fund

Established: October 1972

The Cora Hubbard Williams Fund was established at The Pittsburgh Foundation in 1972 to support orphaned and disadvantaged youth. Williams, daughter of Pittsburgh manufacturer John Winslow Hubbard, created the fund to assist specifically with orphaned children or those neglected by caretakers.

With an interest in Pittsburgh youth organizations such as Three Rivers Youth and the Western Pennsylvania School for Blind Children, Williams, who died in 1971, was dedicated to helping children with developmental and educational needs.

She contributed to education on a larger scale, bequeathing the famed Maharaja of Indore Necklace, personally bought from jeweler Harry Winston, to the Smithsonian Institution in 1972. The Cora Hubbard Williams Fund continues to support childcare regardless of a child’s status.
