Donations to Hillcrest Academy are tax deductible through Hillcrest's 501c3 status
#HLAGives is raising opportunities for students to come to Hillcrest by increasing student scholarships. We invite you to join alumni and friends on Thursday, February 8 2018 to make this a day to celebrate generosity for Hillcrest!
A generous donor has started the ball rolling, giving a $5000 gift match to your donations for student scholarships. This gift match is a dollar-for-dollar match, with the goal being to raise $10,000 in one day that will aid a number of families to join the Hillcrest family. Throughout Thursday, Feb. 8, families and friends of Hillcrest stepped in to help raise funds for more students to attend Hillcrest Academy. The day was wildly successful, raising over $20,000 for student scholarships.
