Supporting Hilltop


As a non-profit organization, Hilltop fundraises to help cover the gap between the revenue from tuition and the true cost of a Hilltop early childhood education. We raise money through local businesses like PCC, Amazon, and Bartell’s, The Seattle Foundation’s annual GiveBig Day, and Hilltop’s Annual Giving Fund.

The money we raise supports the emergent curriculum in the classrooms, our Siri Mayo and Myrna Canon Scholarship Funds, one time improvement projects, and faculty professional growth and development. To provide an environment where every child can build on the wonders of childhood requires a significant investment in our teachers and our curriculum. Gifts from members of our community – current families, extended family members, friends, faculty, and community partners – ensure that every child can participate in the Hilltop experience, and that every child’s experience at Hilltop is of high quality.

Generous contributions of time and money affirm our shared commitment to providing extraordinary learning opportunities for our children today and for years to come.
