Thank you for your interest in supporting Preston Hollow Presbyterian School. Your gifts provide essential support for the school’s talented faculty, exceptional academic programs, and outstanding opportunities for students. The Development Office oversees fund-raising efforts to benefit our school:
Contributions to the PHPS Fund directly and immediately benefit each and every member of the student community. The donations contributed to the PHPS Fund are unrestricted and critical to our operating budget each year. For these reasons, the PHPS Fund is always the school’s first fundraising priority. The PHPS Fund bridges the $1,200 gap between what tuition covers and our actual expenses. These tax-deductible gifts help us maintain levels of excellence for our students and faculty in the areas of academics, athletics, technology, and enrichment programs. Contributions to the PHPS Fund have allowed Preston Hollow to fund the following:
- Technology updates and acquisitions
- Drama program through the Dallas Children’s Theater
- Accelerated Reader programs, books, software, and AR store
- Orff instruments for music
- Outdoor learning center and nature pond
- Teacher Allotments ($300 for each classroom teacher to use for classroom enhancements)
- Professional development seminars for teachers
All gifts are appreciated, and we hope you will support the PHPS Fund. For more information, please contact Julie Bonahoom at email@example.com or 214.368.3886 ext. 162
