Dodge Board welcomes new trustee

June 30, 2020

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Eleanor Horne to the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation’s Board of Trustees to a four-year term. 

Eleanor Horne is former vice president at Educational Testing Service’s Social Investment Fund.

“I am delighted to join the Dodge Board of Trustees because of its focus on New Jersey, its long-standing commitment to creative, sustainable, and engaged communities, and its focus on equity and inclusion,” Eleanor said. 

Eleanor, of Lawrenceville, serves on several boards, including the Princeton Area Community Foundation, The College of New Jersey, D&R Greenway, and the Lawrence Hopewell Trail. She retired from a 41-year career at Educational Testing Service in 2010, when she was vice president of the company’s Social Investment Fund, which provides financial support to charitable activities in communities in which ETS has offices. 

 “Eleanor is a well-respected and much-admired community volunteer and leader with extensive governance expertise and demonstrated commitment to New Jersey,” said Preston Pinkett III, board chair.   

Eleanor has been lauded by the National Urban League, who presented her with its highest honor, the Donald H. McGannon Award, and she received Princeton YWCA’s Tribute to Women in Industry Achievement Award, among others. She graduated from Howard University with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and has completed course work for a doctorate in educational anthropology at Rutgers University. 

“We are thrilled that Eleanor has joined the Board at this important time in Dodge’s history,” said Tanuja Dehne, Dodge president and CEO. “Each trustee brings new voices, perspectives, and a shared commitment to an equitable New Jersey.”
