Fundraisers & Donations

Contributing to the Annual Nest Egg Campaign  

The Hillhurst School Society’s main fundraising activity for 2021-22 will once again be the Annual Nest Egg Fundraising Campaign. Last year Hillhurst parents and local businesses generously contributed over $20,000 to The Nest Egg. Your donations supported a variety of enrichment activities and programs throughout Hillhurst School. This year funds raised from the Nest Egg Fundraising Campaign will again support a wide range of program enrichment initiatives supported by the Hillhurst School Society and directed by Hillhurst school administration. 

Donations can be made year-round via e-transfer to hillhurst.nestegg@gmail.com or directed through United Way or Benevity to Hillhurst (Elementary) Community School Society. All donations over $25 will receive a tax receipt.

Please see the documents in the Resources section of this page for more information about donating to the Nest Egg Fundraising Campaign and the form to be completed and submitted when making a donation.
