About the Founder

Dr. Abraham M. George is the founder and the principal benefactor of The George Foundation. Born in Kerala, India, and trained at the National Defence Academy in Kadakvasla (similar to West Point), he served as an artillery officer in the Indian Army before being honorably discharged as a Captain. Subsequently, he migrated to the U.S., and obtained an M.B.A in Economics, M.S. in Finance, and Ph.D. in International Finance and Banking from the Stern School of Business at New York University.

Dr. George is currently the Chairman at eMedexOnline LLC, a medical diagnostic software company in the U.S. His professional career included: Chairman of Multinational Computer Models, Inc. (MCM), a financial software applications company he founded; a Vice Chairman at SunGard Data Systems, a New York Stock Exchange listed company that bought MCM; and a Managing Director at CS First Boston, a global investment bank.

After over 20 years of absence from India, Dr. George returned in 1995 to start several humanitarian projects. In order to have the freedom to carry out his ideas and concepts, and to demonstrate the obligation on the part of private individuals of financial means to make contributions to the needy segment of the society, he decided not to seek any external funding for his projects during the initial ten years of the foundation's activities. Now that several of the projects he has started have made a good beginning, The George Foundation is seeking additional funds from donors to expand its humanitarian work.
