The Annual Fund is Hill Top’s primary fund-raising program with a goal to generate unrestricted contributions, as well as restricted donations for operating programs to be used in the fiscal year (July 1 through June 30) during which they are donated.
Gifts to the Annual Fund are unrestricted and serve to bridge the gap between what parents and school districts pay toward tuition and what it actually costs to run Hill Top on a day-to-day basis. This variance averages more than $3,700 per student per school year.
These funds make it possible for Hill Top to operate within its budget each year. Annual gifts vary in size, but not in importance as they encourage participation in fundraising efforts by trustees, faculty/staff, alumni, parents and friends.
