Ways to Give

Gifts of any amount will have great impact and are much appreciated by our scholars and families. Below, we have provided sample donation amounts to highlight the potential impact of your gift. If you would like to learn more about CEO and our Scholars — or are considering making a major gift, legacy gift, are interested in estate giving — please contact Carolanne Marquis, Executive Director, at director@ceoct.org or 203-608-4848.


Carolanne and members of our Board of Directors and Development Committee are available to share more about the Mission, Impact and Success of CEO over the past 25 years.

CEO is  particularly interested in sharing the impact of our CEO Scholars during this past year where the COVID-19 pandemic had such influence on the education of our Connecticut children.  CEO is proud to announce that 364 CEO Scholars attended and remained in school for the 2020-21 academic year – funding just under $800,000 in scholarships.  CEO is currently overwhelmed with parents requesting scholarships for the 2021-22 academic year.

CEO would appreciate the opportunity to share how you can be a part of the Success of our CEO Scholars and their families.

“If you are relatively new to CEO, I call your attention to the elegant simplicity of awarding matching scholarships (up to half tuition up to $2,100 per year) to children of financially struggling but highly motivated parents who sacrifice much to provide a better future for their families.

In the 2020-2021 academic year, CEO was unable to fund over 200 children who were qualified applicants for a scholarship. CEO lacks the money to fund these scholarships.

As of July 30, 2021, CEO has funded 364 scholarships and 92 children are on the “Wait List/Pending Funds”.

And that doesn’t begin to measure our desire to assist children elsewhere in our state.”
