In recognition of the role and impact The Episcopal School of Dallas has had, and continues to have, on the life and education of their children, the Lewis Family share their inspiration for giving to endowment:
What inspired your family to make a gift to The Campaign for The Episcopal School of Dallas?
ESD provides an exemplary education opportunity. We want the students for whom it is a stretch for their family to afford that opportunity to have some of that burden lifted.
What appealed to you about giving to endowment?
The endowment was appealing to us because we could direct our financial resources to an area we care most about.
Please describe the purpose of your endowment fund.
The purpose of The Lewis Family Endowment is non-tuition financial support for students. We feel this is a spectrum that is often overlooked. Through endowment earnings directed to non-tuition assistance, students can enjoy a complete and fulfilling ESD experience assured that they have access to materials necessary for classroom and extracurricular success.
What advice would you offer to inspire others to consider establishing an endowment fund?
Always keeping in mind that these children are our bright future, we would advise others to think about what is most important to you about this School and community. For us, it was ensuring that all students be allowed the optimal educational experience that ESD can provide.
