A. Lindsay and Olive B. O’Connor Foundation

With gratitude to Donald Bishop, Executive Director of the O’Connor Foundation.

The O’Connor Foundation Scholarship was established by the A. Lindsay and Olive B. O’Connor Foundation to assist Empire State College students living in Delaware County. In 1965, Mrs. A. Lindsay (Olive B. Huggans) O’Connor formed an organization, the A. Lindsay and Olive B. O’Connor Foundation, to be operated exclusively for religious, charitable, literary or educational purposes, including the prevention of cruelty to children and animals. It was her wish that first consideration be given to religious, charitable, scientific, literary and educational organizations in which she and her husband, A. Lindsay O’Connor, were interested. After that it was Mrs. O’Connor’s wish that the Board give consideration to other qualified recipients. The principal area of program interest is the quality of life in rural Delaware County and contiguously surrounding rural counties in New York State.
