Partner Program

Partner Program


We depend on our alumni and friends to help continue the mission of Hillcrest by providing The Hillcrest Experience for our students! Alumni support is seen as a reflection of the institution’s strength and vitality.

The program is made up of individuals, families, and businesses who make ongoing contributions to the Hillcrest Annual Fund creating a better sustainability in day-to-day operations.

THE ANNUAL FUND is the school’s mission critical fundraising effort. Essentially the Annual Fund is what helps us deliver The Hillcrest Experience to each of our students year after year. GIFTS TO THE ANNUAL FUND help make The Hillcrest Experience more affordable and accessible to our students and allow Hillcrest to fulfill its mission to educate and nurture each student within Christ-centered community. AS A PARTNER you will be listed in the Spring/Summer issue of the Bruit (alumni magazine) as a Partner at a specific level (unless you wish to be anonymous). And have the joy and satisfaction of investing in the lives of Hillcrest students.
