Community Day School Received Major Gift from the Daniel E. Offutt, III Charitable Trust

The Giving Coast

SRQ DAILY WEDNESDAY PHILANTHROPY EDITION WEDNESDAY DEC 11, 2019

Hershorin Schiff Community Day School recently received a gift of $500,000 from the Daniel E. Offutt, III Charitable Trust. The funds – which were directed by the trustee, Richard Orenstein – will be used to create an endowment fund for scholarships and to support the building of the Offutt Art Studio as part of the school’s new facilities on The Larry & Mary Greenspon Family Campus for Jewish Life. The capital funds for the Offutt Art Studio are being directed through The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee, which is currently in the midst of a major fundraising campaign to redevelop its 32-acre campus on McIntosh Road. Community Day School will move to the Greenspon Campus for the 2021-2022 school year. Daniel E. Offutt was a creative man who invested in stocks on Wall Street and was president of his own company, DEO Enterprises. Although he continued to dabble in stocks, he was in a position to retire early and pursue his creative hobbies, including photography, woodworking, and welding sculptures made of iron.
