$100,000 Gift from Cleveland Research Company Creates High School Investment Project for College Scholarships

Posted August 25, 2021 in Press Releases

The Cleveland Research Company will lead a team of 10th grade students at Saint Martin de Porres High School in determining how to invest a $100,000 gift! Aimed at exposing students to the stock market, Cleveland Research Company professionals will connect with students on a monthly basis to teach financial literacy, review investment options, and select new investments. Upon graduation from Saint Martin, all investment profits and initial capital from the program will be shared with the students through a college scholarship.

Chris Byke, President of Cleveland Research Company said, “We couldn’t be more excited to expand our 9 year relationship with Saint Martin de Porres. This program was created out of our company’s desire to give back to Cleveland and impact the lives of young people long-term. We wanted to do more than just give a donation but also teach students important skills to be successful.”

The Cleveland Research Scholarship Program launched to Saint Martin de Porres High School’s 10th grade students this week. Monthly sessions will begin in September and continue through the end of the school year. Participants will remain in the program from 10th-12th grade and graduate from Saint Martin with college scholarships from the profits of the investment. Although the plan for the program will continue over the next 3 years, the hope is to expand the program in future years.

“This may be one of the most unique high school programs in the country!” says Chaz Napoli, President of Saint Martin de Porres High School. “It provides our students with lifelong skills and connects them to real professionals in the business. With investing, the earlier you can start the better. I’m excited to see how this knowledge could impact our students and their families for generations to come.”
