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 the Executive Director, Carolanne Marquis 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. Sample Gift Amounts and Impact provided by the family of CEO donors include:

If you are relatively new to CEO, I call your attention to the elegant simplicity of awarding matching scholarships (up to half tuition upo to $2,100 per year) to children of financially struggling but high motivated parents who sacrifice much to provide a better future for their families. This year alone, we had to turn down over 200 qualified students from the cities and towns we currently serve . . . And that doesn’t begin to measure our desire to assist children elsewhere in our state.”
