The Hospitals of Providence announced its commitment of $25,000 to the EPISD Education Foundation last Tuesday and will serve as this year’s honorary chair for the Campaign for Excellence.
The $25,000 contribution supports the mission of the Education Foundation to provide scholarships to deserving high school seniors and classroom impact grants to enhance the education for all students.
“We are proud to be the 2016 Presenting Sponsor for the EPISD Foundation and know that our commitment will directly affect and enhance the quality of education for our students,” said Sally Hurt-Deitch, Market CEO of The Hospitals of Providence. “We look at this as an opportunity to invest in our community, and that investment is through our children.”
Board President Russell Wiggs thanked the Hospitals of Providence for their contribution and commitment to education.
“We are grateful for the Hospital of Providence’s corporate gift and the opportunities it means for our students,” Wiggs said. “Their support of the EPISD Education Foundation shows their strong commitment to education and the future of our students.”
The Education Foundation supports innovation in teaching and learning and scholarships through corporate partnerships, fundraising events and an employee giving campaign.
The EPISD Education Foundation was established in 1994 to provide opportunities for excellence in education, promote innovation in teaching, and partner with the community to enhance the education for all students.
Since its inception 20 years ago, the EPISD Education Foundation has awarded more than $1.5 million in college scholarships and classroom impact grants, including $58,000 in college scholarships and $16,000 in classroom impact grants this year.
