Ways to Give

Gifts of any amount will have great impact and are much appreciated by our scholars and families.

“Each year of a child’s education is a precious opportunity that is beyond the reach of many families who lack the financial means to look beyond failing and dangerous inner-city school systems.  It’s a tragedy that compelled me to support CEO and is the reason I passionately work to increase the number of annual scholarships we award.” 

David Bohn
President, Preferred Utilities / CEO Board of Directors Vice-Chair and member of the Board since 1998

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 Scholars attended and remained in school for the 2020-21 academic year – funding just under $800,000 in scholarships. Last year CEO was overwhelmed with parents requesting scholarships but funded 368 students.

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