Roots of The Olin and Desta Schwab Foundation

Olin B. Schwab’s dream 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, he noticed that people who enjoyed their work were likely to be truly successful in their careers.

In 1989, he created the Olin B. and Desta Schwab Foundation with the mission to identify and support non-profit organizations that provide programs which promote and prepare young people to make informed educational and career decisions.
