The Gerald and Dorothy Erich Endowment Fund draws both its name and its inspiration from Gerald (Jerry) and Dorothy Erich.
The long-time owners of Erich Printing and Lithographing, they gave many young people their start in graphics and the business world.
Jerry funded the endowment and conferred on the Board of Directors the responsibility of carrying on his objective of helping worthy high school graduates of the East Side Union High School District to pursue their educational goals through two-year scholarships to two-year programs at community colleges or trade schools.
