  • Corawill, Inc.

Corawill, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization established in 2012. Corawill is named for founder Jean's paternal grandparents, Cora and Willson Hatcherson, whose home was always open to friends and family in need.

 

Corawill, Inc. gives financial support to programs in the US and abroad that help under-served children and adults. These programs include schools, summer camps, social homes, and orphanages around the world. We donate to projects run by small NGOs, many with whom we also volunteer. However, we are open to supporting any organization that works to assist and/or advocate for people in need. All donations go right to the projects and NGOs we support. No member of Corawill receives a salary and non-program overhead expenses are minimal.

Corawill also offers short-term international volunteer opportunities. Collaborating with small, local non-profits we design hands-on projects, working side-by-side with children and adults on socialization, literacy, art, sport, and facility improvement projects. We aim to promote cultural awareness, education, and the gaining of practical skills in an atmosphere of respect, equality and cultural exchange for our volunteers and those we visit.
