Hill Center Preservation Fund


As we begin our fifth full year of operation, Hill Center's triumph as an educational and cultural institution has far surpassed initial aspirations. More than 50,000 visitors attended programs and special events in 2015. Such intensive use, though, takes a heavy toll on the building and grounds. The cost of maintaining the campus at the current level of quality and historic authenticity is expected to significantly exceed original projections.

The Hill Center Preservation Fund was established to protect and maintain this carefully restored building, the carriage house and grounds. Thanks to the generosity of many individuals from the Capitol Hill community and beyond, we raised $535,000 through December 2015 to launch the fund.

We welcome your support as we continue to build the Preservation Fund - to ensure that the Hill Center campus will endure as a prime example of 19th century public architecture and your go-to place for culture, education and civic life.
