Williams Honored for Career in Philanthropy

Saint Mark Baptist Church has honored Dr. Charlotte Williams for her career in philanthropy as part of the church’s celebration of Black History Month.

Saint Mark’s Black History Month spotlight is focused on philanthropists who are changemakers, and inspire the community as examples of leadership, legacy, creativity, and impact.

Williams is Professor of Public Health and Director of the Center on Community Philanthropy. The Center is dedicated to expanding the knowledge, tools, and practice of community-spawned and community-driven philanthropy.

In 2020, Williams created the first academic-based National Racial Healing Certification Program for leaders in the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors. Williams co-authored the book, “Passing the Torch; Planning for the Next Generation of Leaders in Public Service.” The book features an analysis of succession planning across a variety of nonprofit organizations and examines what will motivate the next generation of public servants.

A business administration graduate from Howard University, Williams earned her doctoral degree in Public Health and her master’s degree in Public Health from the UAMS College of Public Health.

In her academic research experience, she has extensively studied and published papers in several peer reviewed journals including Academic Medicine, the Journal of Communication and the Journal of Nonprofit Management and Leadership.
