Thank You Donors! 2018-2019 Annual Appeal Underway

Because of your most generous support, we surpassed our 2017-2018 Annual Appeal goal! Over 130 donors donated this year, making an immediate impact on our growing programs and athletics. Our FY19 Appeal is now underway, and we hope you, our Hill House faithful, will join our community of over 1,700 families to support our over 90+ Hill House programs by making a donation. 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!
