Scholarship Funds



Thousands of students have received the gift of Catholic education because of generous donors whose mission matches our own - to ensure access to Catholic education. Donors have established endowed scholarships, fund annual scholarships, and donate to support the organization's operations. As these scholarships grow, so does the Quincy Catholic Elementary Schools Foundation's ability to impact even more lives. 

You can join with these donors to create lasting impact in the lives of our students by donating to an existing scholarship or establishing a new endowed scholarship. For more information on how to donate or establish, contact Sara Reuschel via email or by calling (217) 779-3157.

QCES Foundation Scholarships

Endowed Scholarships

An endowed scholarship provides a perpetual source of income to be distributed to deserving QCES students. Gifts made to establish or grow and endowed scholarship are invested, and once fully established, interest earned is awarded to a QCES student or family for one academic year. The principal and any additional donations remain untouched, and only the interest is used to provide funding.  

The QCES Foundation encourages donors who create endowed scholarship funds to regularly contribute gifts for the scholarship to grow and add to its earning power. Anyone is able to donate to a specific scholarship fund. 

Current Endowed Scholarships with the QCES Foundation are:

William F. & Esther Grawe Bergman Memorial
