Helen Kim Society

Dr. Helen Kim, the 7th president of Ewha (1939 to 1961), was a remarkable woman who dedicated her life to making Ewha prosper and helping open up the future for young women of Korea. Forty years ago, in 1970, Dr. Kim and a group of friends from North America gathered together to dream a dream — a big dream. They formed a Foundation that would assemble resources and funds, provide scholarship assistance, and tell the story of a small but mighty university: Ewha Womans University. Throughout the decades, many others have joined and participated in supporting the growth of Ewha and the Foundation.


Forty years later, in 2010, International Foundation of Ewha Womans University launches Helen Kim Society in memory of Dr. Kim’s dedication and love for Ewha and in commemoration of the Foundation’s 40 years service.

The Society consists of two parts: the Helen Kim Heritage Society includes donors who include Ewha Foundation in their will, and the Helen Kim Leadership Society includes donors who give over $100,000 towards scholarships.

Members are awarded the “Alice Appenzeller Award” (an honoring certificate), which recognizes the special role of Alice Appenzeller in the history of the Foundation. With special acknowledgement by the Foundation President, member names will be published in the Newsletter and Website.

These generous gifts are used to support deserving students in need of financial assistance.
