About Us

Bill and Carol Latimer are long time residents of Obion County.  The Bill and Carol Latimer Charitable Foundation believes that there are unmet needs in Obion and surrounding counties. The Foundation recognizes that opportunities to implement that vision are limited by a lack of financial resources. The college loan program and church grants are some of the better known steps to help remove some financial barriers.

One of the early works of the Foundation was to help build the Obion County Public Library.  The Foundation was also key in establishing the Latimer High Adventure Reservation which is owned and operated by the Middle Tennessee Council, Boy Scouts of America.  Outside the state of Tennessee the Foundation is deeply involved in the physical housing expansion of Asbury Theological Seminary in Wilmore, KY and in providing financial assistance to full-time seminary students who plan to become full-time ministers or missionaries.


The Latimers desire to do God’s will. They value loyalty, hard work, strength of character, and faith in God and country.  Members of the Trust Committee serve 3 year terms.   The current Trust Committee members are:
