Support our 2017-2018 Annual Appeal

This year we hope you, our Hill House community, will join our community of over 1,700 families to support our over 70+ Hill House programs by making a donation to our Annual Appeal. Did you know? Hill House's program fees fund about two-thirds of our operating budget and we rely on the generosity of donors to fund the remaining 30% each year. Support from the community helps us compensate our dedicated staff and instructors, provide program scholarships, serve monthly meals to neighborhood seniors, and offer free events and activities. Help support your backyard in the city and Donate Now!
