Hillside Annual Fund

The generosity of many – alumni, parents and grandparents, friends, businesses and corporations – helps to keep The Hillside School at the forefront in the education of children with language-based learning disabilities.  Your Annual Fund gift assures Hillside will have the resources to sustain and enhance the unique and exceptional educational environment that has been the cornerstone of the school since its founding in 1983.

All areas of Hillside benefit from The Hillside School Annual Fund.  The Annual Fund gives Hillside’s administrators the ability and flexibility to meet the most pressing needs, whether it is professional development, instructional programs and supplies, technology upgrades or building and grounds improvements.  Our students and teachers are the immediate beneficiaries of your Annual Fund gift.
