Dear Hillcrest Families,
It is with great pleasure that we announce the results of first ever Annual Fund campaign for Hillcrest. Thank you to everyone who made contributions this year and encouraged friends and family to do so as well.
When we kicked off the fall campaign at our Harvest festival, Hillcrest’s goal to raise $15,000 before the end of the calendar year. With the generosity of Hillcrest families and alumni families, we met that goal and raised $16,690!
Then, we were overjoyed to receive a single gift of $20,000 from generous anonymous donors. Together, we raised more than $36,690 for Hillcrest this fall!
Funds raised will go toward:
A full 2018 holiday bonus for teachers and staff members. Every staff member received a holiday bonus this year, which is adjusted for the number of years worked. The bonuses were issued in December.
New classroom and hallway flooring that will be installed in 2019;
The building maintenance reserve fund.
The additional funds allow us to put more money into the reserve fund for upcoming major renovations, primarily the replacement of the building’s 60-year-old boiler and upgrading the center’s roof. These changes will keep the building safe and operating for years to come.
We’d like to acknowledge the following donors (excludes anonymous gifts):
