WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (June 25, 2013) - On behalf of the William & Mary Athletics Program, Bobby Dwyer, Senior Associate Athletics Director, accepted two donations on June 17, 2013.  The checks were presented by Mrs. Kimberly Maloney, owner of the Williamsburg Pottery, and Mr. Sandy Wanner, member of the James Maloney Foundation advisory board. The Williamsburg Pottery donated $4,000 and the James Maloney Foundation donated $6,000. 

Continued education and athletics were always cornerstones in the philanthropy of late Pottery founder, Jimmy Maloney. Established by Kim Maloney in his memory, the James Maloney Foundation has supported the community, including its educational and athletic programs, since its inception in 2005. From the time it was established, the Foundation has donated more than $170,000.

The Foundation is funded solely by the Williamsburg Pottery, which donates 1 percent of its sales every year to support the foundation’s philanthropic activities. Recipients have included the United Way, Salvation Army, FISH, Grove Christian Outreach Center, and Meals on Wheels. The Foundation also supports the Rita Welsh Adult Literacy Program, and contributes scholarships annually for the area’s four high schools – Bruton, Jamestown, Lafayette and Warhill.

The Williamsburg Pottery was established in 1938 and this year marks its 75th Anniversary as a local family owned and operated business.  The Pottery is honored to be able to help provide support to the Athletics Program at William & Mary.
