Since chartering in 1987, the Chattanooga Chapter of Executive Women International (EWI) has contributed more than $150,000 to scholarship donations at University of Tennessee, Chattanooga State and Southern Adventist University.  The scholarships are specifically designated for single mothers earning a bachelor's degree.

In 2011, EWI of Chattanooga continued a tradition started in 1996, by donating $11,667 to the Jean Bradford Memorial Endowment Fund, established in memory of Jean Bradford, Executive Assistant to UTC Chancellor, Dr. Frederick Obear.  Jean Bradford, an EWI member, passed away in 1995.

EWI also contributed $5,833 to Chattanooga State, and $2,000 to Southern Adventist University in 2011. The group's members feel fortunate to have made positive impact on their community through enriching the lives of 22 women at UTC, 16 at Chattanooga State, and four at Southern Adventist University.
