A brief description of the companies, funds, and/or institutions referenced above:

Williams has a diversified investment pool that includes investments in equities, fixed income, and private alternatives. In alternative investments we hold some investments in companies that focus on sustainable resources (e.g. solar and wind power, recycling, carbon emissions, etc.) The value of these holdings is unknown.

Williams offers donors the option to direct investments to a Social Choice Fund. 90% of this fund is invested in a socially responsible mutual fund and 10% is invested in a community loan fund.
