The Olin and Desta Schwab Foundation Roots
The Dream of Olin B. Schwab was that no person be deprived of an opportunity to recognize and realize his/her talents and potential career opportunities. Mr. Schwab wanted all young people to be prepared to make informed educational decisions and career choices. During his lifetime, Mr. Schwab pointed out that people who like their work would probably be truly successful in that career. In 1989, he created the Olin B. and Desta Schwab Foundation with the mission to identify and support non-profit organizations that provide programs that promote and prepare young people to make informed educational and career decisions.
