HISTORY

The Elizabeth George Foundation was created in 2000 with the sole purpose of making artistic grants to unpublished fiction writers, emerging playwrights and organizations benefiting disadvantaged youth.
     Elizabeth George, who created the foundation, knew first-hand the struggles of being a young, unpublished writer, looking for a way to give her craft the time it deserved. After her success as a novelist, Elizabeth was determined to give back to the writers' world by supporting up-and-coming fiction writers with monetary honors, so that they, too, could have an opportunity to make their way to success.
     She also wanted to help children and youth who might not have had opportunities to discover their talents at writing, acting and music. And she needed a way to just reach out a helping hand to disadvantaged youth whose dreams may have been sidelined because of bad health or lack of social skills.
     Thus, the creation of her foundation.
     The Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees that meets annually to review the applications for grants and to make awards. Currently, five trustees serve on the board and represent a wide range of professional backgrounds.
