Fundraiser Dinner held on April 21, 2018
Thank you to all who attended and contributed to our most recent fundraiser. We raised almost $13,000 to increase our total Endowment for Higher Education in Asia to $93,000. The annual proceeds from the Endowment will continue to fund scholarships for women students in higher education in Asia.
Nancy Powell, career ambassador (ret.), U. S. Department of State, was the guest speaker at the Asia Endowment event - "Partnering for Women's Futures in Asia" - held on April 21, 2018, at Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church in Bethesda, Maryland.
The Endowment for Higher Education in Asia was established by the Session of Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church in 2010 to provide educational opportunities for women in institutions of higher learning in Asia.
Since its founding, the Endowment for Higher Education in Asia has held periodic fundraisers to highlight the work of the endowment, celebrate those who have contributed, and draw our community of support together with speakers, entertainment and a dinner.
We are always looking for new friends of women’s education and the endowment to help us plan and hold our fundraising events, maintain our web page, communicate with our members, and identify possible new institutions of higher education to support.
George and Leslye Johnson - past members of Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church and former NIH scientists - have taught at Forman Christian College, our primary recipient of scholarship aid, and they observed first-hand the students benefiting from the scholarships provided.
