The Episcopal School of Dallas is honored to announce a grant of $300,000 from the Hoblitzelle Foundation in support of building a new innovative Lower School on ESD's Merrell Road Campus.
The Hoblitzelle Foundation, established in 1942 by Karl and Esther Hoblitzelle, generously supports many Dallas-area educational, social service, medicine and health care, cultural, and civic organizations. Grants enable these non-profit institutions to "bring into being a project or program of great promise and worth."
"We are enormously grateful for the Hoblitzelle Foundation grant and their continued support," said Don Carty, Chair of the ESD Board of Directors. "It not only endorses the importance of our project, it also inspires others to do the same. The Hoblitzelle's support of exemplary education is legendary, starting with the founding of Southwestern Medical School."
This is the Foundation's 11th campaign grant to The Episcopal School of Dallas. The first gift was in support of the Merrell Road land purchase in 1977.
The Campaign for The Episcopal School of Dallas is founded on a thoughtful and strategically phased plan that will bring ESD's shared vision to life. It has three priorities: increasing the endowment for greater sustainability, uniting the community on one campus by building a Lower School on the Merrell Road Campus, and affirming today's educational experience through the Annual Fund. To date, more than $45,000,000 has been raised toward the $75,000,000 goal.
