There are many ways for you to support Hillside’s mission. However you choose to give, your generosity makes a lasting impact in our ability to serve children and families.

DONATE NOW Making an online donation or a monthly commitment is the easiest way to support Hillside’s mission—and those dollars are put to work right away, helping to fulfill our ongoing programmatic priorities for youth and families. Our Donate Now page also includes information for making a gift by mail.

PLANNED GIVING The Pinnacle Society recognizes the unique philanthropic vision of individuals and families who donate to Hillside through bequests, trusts, life income gifts and other estate-planning tools. These donors create a path to long-term benefits for children and families in need.

EVENTS Participating in the Hillside Golf Tournament—as a golfer or a sponsor—provides vital support for Hillside programs. And our annual Special Santa program depends on a broad array of community engagement. Learn more about upcoming events here.

Generosity: Charity Begins Early for Evie

At just 7 years old, Evie Lepel already inspires. When she learned that children in residential treatment at Hillside are temporarily unable to live with their families, Evie decided to raise money to help them, via a favorite activity: reading.

Family and friends agreed to sponsor her reading, at a set financial amount per chapter. She exceeded all expectations by devouring 42 chapters in a single weekend—five books in all!—and raised over $900 for Hillside.

“I always knew she would change the world someday,” Evie’s mom Rebecca Lepel said of her daughter. “Our job is to guide her toward positive change.” Evie, Hillside thanks you for your support. Keep reading!
