Thank you for your support

To those who have provided support, we thank you. 

We reached our matching gift challenge of $20,000 but it’s not over yet! We are still accepting donations until Christmas.

After Ida Scudder bore witness to the deaths of three expectant mothers in 1894, she determined, “I could not bear to think of these young girls as dead…I must go home and study medicine and come back to India to help such women.” 

Dr. Rose and her team are an inspiration to us all and truly embody the SAF. The Scudder Foundation was created over 100 years ago to support Dr. (Aunt) Ida Scudder and her tireless efforts to provide modern medical care to the women of India. Thus enabling us to continue our long tradition of “Service to Others”  and, further fulfilling two of Aunt Ida’s greatest passions: “high quality maternal health” and “an outreach to those in greatest need.” 

100% of the donations will go toward the funding of a maternity care facility in the remote region of Jawadhi Hills that provides childbirth deliveries, obstetric, neonatal intensive care, and maternal-child healthcare training. 

If you haven’t already, you can still donate to the campaign!
