Our monthly expenses really are modest, overall.
- Classroom Assistant
The total works out to a bit over $1,000 each month.
Our financial focus has never been about making sure all expenses are covered, it’s about making sure the children get the positive effects of the programs.
Seven of our twelve children receive some level of tuition reduction to make the program affordable. But those who send us bills don’t give a commensurate reduction in costs, so we need to cover the monthly gap.
That’s where your generosity comes in.
At the outset of this little campaign last year we already had a handful of monthly donors — those wonderful people who sustain us in this work. We call them Hilltop Children’s Champions. They are champions because they enable us to plan for larger improvements to our building, secure that the monthly expenses are accounted for.
We had set a goal of 20 new $20/month donors before the end of 2020, but we fell a little short.
So we are looking to end up with a total of 21 more CHAMPIONS before the end of this school year.
So: 21 at $20 in 2021!
Naturally we wouldn’t object to a monthly pledge of MORE than $20, but $20 is the number we’re looking for.
There are a number of ways you can make this pledge. Some are through services that will take a small fee, others pass 100% of the amount on to Hilltop Children’s House.
- Direct Bank Transfer: A scheduled monthly transfer can be set up. Contact Us for more details.
- Facebook: Go to our Facebook page, click the “Donate” button, and be sure to click on the “Monthly Donation” button as you check out.
Options With a Small Fee
- PopMoney: They charge a small fee, but it is a direct bank transfer with no Paypal or other middle man. Go to PopMoney.com, set up your account, and then use [email protected] to set up your monthly donation.
- Stripe: Stipe is most convenient for many, and it takes a small fee — Hilltop Children’s House receives all but about 15¢ of every $20. Set up your recurring donation through Stripe, here!
