Advancement at HSC is about much more than just dollars and cents. It is about meaningful and genuine connections, a vibrant school community, sharing inspirational stories, and being true to the values and ideals that our school community embraces. Like most great academic institutions, Hillfield Strathallan College (HSC) is a not-for-profit charitable organization that relies on philanthropic support to enhance the educational experience of our students. It is thanks to generations of generous donors that HSC is the strong academic institution that it is today. And it is our donors who will enable our school to grow for generations to come.
What does Advancement at HSC mean? It means that we work every day to support our school in developing students who respect and understand our world, and who inspire, lead, act and make a difference in their own unique ways. We look to partner with those in our community who believe in the power of investing in education, and together we develop well-rounded future leaders with a sense of purpose. 
When you support HSC, you are helping to create a better future. Together, the funds we raise go directly to supporting and enhancing educational programs for our students. I invite you to explore these pages to learn more about various initiatives and ways that you can support HSC. There are many ways to get involved, and we welcome the opportunity to help find an initiative that is meaningful to you. 
I am proud to be a part of this fabulous school and look forward to connecting with you. I believe there is an exciting future ahead for HSC, and with your support, we have the tools to make great things happen.
