Elizabeth George Endowment Fund

Elizabeth George Endowment Fund


The Elizabeth George Endowment Fund was established as a Wider Church Ministries endowment fund at the request of donor Gail Baker.   The Fund honors Elizabeth George,  the first Indian principal of Women’s Christian College in Chennai and Professor of Philosophy and Vice-Principal of Lady Doak College in Madurai, 1954-1962.

Distributions from this Fund are used by Global Ministries for the Elizabeth George Scholarship, awarded to an undergraduate student at Lady Doak College majoring in English or Tamil.  This is intended as a four-year scholarship and, if possible, it is to alternate between students studying English and Tamil.  

The Elizabeth George Endowment Fund provides an opportunity for donors, especially constituents of the United Church of Christ and the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), but not exclusively, to make contributions to a permanent fund that will provide Global Ministries resources with which to support a scholarship at Lady Doak College in Madurai, India. 

Contributions may be made to the principal of this Fund at any time. Gifts for the Elizabeth George Endowment Fund should be directed to:

Wider Church Ministries
