Top The Hill

Help us top the hill


Top the hill with foxes by making a gift to the Hilltopper Fund. For every gift or pledge made to the Hilltopper Fund from October 1st through #GivingTuesday on November 27th, we will place a fox on the senior knoll in your honor. If you have already made a donation, thank you!

We have your fox ready to go on the hill. Look for the foxes on the knoll beginning October 22nd!


Your gift helps us reach our challenge match goal of 200 gifts.

The more foxes on the hill = more support for our Hilltoppers!

200 Foxes = $10,000
150 Foxes = $7,500
100 Foxes = $5,000

What if we could do more?

Your gift gives us the opportunity to ask and answer the important questions that inspire our students to become our creative, courageous, and compassionate future. Your contribution gives our Hilltoppers the resources and support to be the change they want to see in the world and to take ownership in making a
difference in our collective future.



Thank you to our Challenge Match donors!

On behalf of everyone in the Elgin Academy community we would like to thank our challenge match donors. We are extraordinarily grateful for their inspiring gifts.
