The Thomas L. Williams Legacy Society

Thomas Lyle Williams created the Maybelline Company in 1915 and grew it into one of the country's most iconic brands. When he sold the company in 1967, he established a trust to provide annual support for CARE. His trust continues to provide vital and sustainable funds for CARE each year. In honor of his unparalleled generosity and foresight, The Thomas L. Williams Legacy Society serves as a reminder of the importance of creating a legacy that allows us to live on into the future while continuing to help others around the world. The generosity and vision of the members of the Society ensures that CARE continues its outstanding work to save lives, defeat poverty and achieve social justice around the world.
