Looking Ahead in 2017
For Arlington business leader and community supporter Dan Dipert, his philanthropic generosity comes from the joy he gets from giving. And giving to help others began early in his career, not just monetarily, but through his work as a youth minister. During that time, Dan had to deliver tragic news to two young boys that their father had died. This experience was something that always stuck with him. After eight years serving on Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital’s board of trustees, Dan’s lead gift to build a new chapel at the hospital was inspired by that moment and the knowledge that the Dan Dipert Family Chapel would bring comfort and solace to those when they need it most.
Dr. Harold Kaye has been with Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas almost since the beginning. He started his medical practice there in 1971. Harold and his wife Judy both have felt privileged to watch and contribute to the hospital’s growth through the years. Over the past several decades, the couple has supported various fundraising priorities at the hospital, from the Fogelson Forum and Margot Perot Center capital campaign to the Greer Garson Gala and nursing scholarship funds. Most recently, the Kaye family has focused on supporting women’s health. Last year, they celebrated the hospital’s 50th anniversary by contributing toward the purchase of a mobile health unit, which will offer lifesaving health screening services to the underserved populations of Dallas and surrounding communities.
