Endowed Scholarship

Help Us Create a Class of 1968 Endowed Scholarship at Central

As members of the Central Catholic High School Class of 1968, we developed relationships and connectivity that have endured for over half a century.  Our experiences in the 60's at CCHS have carried us through our lives.

Over the years, one person has stood out in trying to keep us informed and up to date on everything from birthdays to retirements and the passing of our classmates. That person was Don Stevens. Don carried the Senior Class President’s mantel with him throughout his life. 

If you visit the CCHS Class of '68 Facebook group page, you know one of the things Don has been most busy with the in the past several years was posting notices of classmates who had passed away. In those posts, he consistently urged each of us to consider donating in memory of the deceased classmate to the “pending CCHS, Class of 1968 Endowed Scholarship fund.” Don made a contribution to CCHS in honor of every single one of those classmates.

As you may know, Don passed away on January 25, 2024. Let's bring Don’s dream of a CCHS Class of 1968 Endowed Scholarship to reality.

An endowment is a donation managed by the school. The original amount (the corpus) is never touched. Rather, that amount is invested and the interest from the investment is used to fund scholarships each year. By endowing a scholarship, we can make a lasting difference an help deserving students FOREVER.

The amount to endow a scholarship at CCHS is $20,000. We know that sounds like a lot. However, if each of us would pitch in according to how we have been blessed financially, we can make this a reality! Each gift, any gift, will help toward this goal. Consider the impact that a gift as small as $100 can have on a student in need.

We know that each of us have charitable organizations we support. Can the CCHS Class of 1968 Endowed Scholarship be one of them? 

If you would like to make a donation, you can make your gift here:  https://www.cchs1968.org/donation_center.cfm. Or send a check made out to "Class of '1968 Endowed Scholaship" to our banker, John Bibish at 2152 Grantwood, Toledo, OH 43613. You can also use Venmo to centralcatholic68@gmail.com.

Together we can make this happen!
