Fundrasing Events

Night On The Hill - Join us for an entertaining event every fall. Enjoy a musical performance, decadent desserts, refreshments and a silent auction to support the Foundation. This event began in 2002 and has evolved into a very prestigious opportunity to support the Hillcrest Foundation scholarship program.
Hillcrest Golf Tournament - This four person scramble started in 2011 and continues to grow each year. Proceeds from the tournament are designated to a different project each year.

Scholarships

Hillcrest Nursing Home Foundation board members have made staff education one of their top priorities. Our Scholarship Loan Program is supported by the Foundation in order to recruit and retain well- educated and dedicated employees. The funds are only available because of the generous contributions from a variety of resources including our employees, fundraisers, as well as, community members. In exchange for the financial scholarships made available to promising individuals, the recipients must enter into contracts to work for Hillcrest Nursing Home for a full two years following completion of their schooling. At the end of the two years, if all qualifications have been met, the scholarship loan will be forgiven. If you have a dream to fulfill in the nursing field, let us help you.
