The 2019 Gene Grawe Fund Scholarships were awarded last night at St. Dominic School in Quincy. 

Scholarships for 471 Quincy families were awarded totaling more than $288-thousand with 84 families receiving at least $1,000.  This year’s distribution pushed the all-time total over a special threshold.  Since 2008, and prior to last night, the Gene Grawe Fund has awarded $1,717,821 to Quincy families to offset Catholic tuition and with last nights distribution of funds over $2-million has now been awarded.

Those funds were raised through the purchase of gift cards, as well as online purchases, at many local and national businesses.  A portion of each sale then was returned to the Gene Grawe Fund by the business.
