Support The Hill

Capital Giving

Capital and endowed gifts are vital to fulfilling the mission of The Hill as gifts to the endowment and capital projects ensure the long-term financial stability of The Hill School.Whether a scholarship, academic chair, or unrestricted gift, giving to the endowment creates a lasting legacy for generations of Hill students to come. A gift to a capital project ensures our students have the best facilities available – in the classroom, in the dormitories, in the arts, or on the athletics fields.

Recently Completed Capital Projects:

The Far Fields Complex: Lehrman '56 Pavilion, Harry L. Price Field, Briggs S. Cunningham '26 '50 Field, and William West Hauser '81 Track

Dedicated in October 2013, The Briggs S. Cunningham '26 '50 Field was generously donated by Mr. and Mrs. Briggs S. Cunningham III '50. The field is home to various sports, but has a slightly shorter turf surface that is designed for field hockey.

A beautiful new turf field lined for multiple sports including lacrosse, soccer, and field hockey, The Harry L. Price Field was generously donated by an anonymous donor in honor of legendary Hill lacrosse coach Harry Price. The field was dedicated in April 2014.

The William West Hauser '81 Track​ - an 8-lane track that was completed in fall 2013 - was made possible thanks to the $1 million leadership gift from W. Kurt Hauser '56. Several other generous Hill track alumni rallied together to complete this project. It features double D-zones that are home to the long jump, high jump, and pole vault areas. It was formally dedicated in April 2014.

A multi-purpose facility on the Far Fields complex, The Lehrman '56 Pavilion is a reality thanks to the leadership support of Lew Lehrman ’56, and contributions from several other generous Hill alumni and parents. The new facility addresses the Far Fields’ needs for athletics teams (team rooms, rest rooms, training rooms, and storage) as well as spectators (rest rooms, concession stand, and gathering space). The pavilion was designed by Richard McElhiney ’71. It officially opened on August 24, 2014 – the first day of preseason athletics – and was dedicated on Saturday, November 8, 2014 as part of The Hill vs. Lawrenceville Weekend.

East Campus Faculty Village

The campaign for new faculty housing received broad, major gift support from alumni, friends, current faculty, and faculty emeriti, as well as current and past Hill School parents. All of the new homes were named for the key leadership donors who made this initiative possible with their extraordinary generosity.

Construction of the first eight homes (four duplexes, which house eight faculty families) was completed in August 2013. The homes were dedicated on October 5, 2013.

The second phase, with three additional single-family homes donated by The Class of 1964, was completed in June 2014 for a total of 11 new homes. These three homes were dedicated during Reunion Weekend, in celebration of Class of 1964's 50th reunion.

Levis '45 * Alexandre '75 Center for the Humanities

The Levis Room has been home to Hill's acclaimed Humanities program for more than 50 years. Thanks to a $100,000 gift from Trustee Jim Alexandre '75 and his wife, Julie, the room was completely renovated and rededicated in January 2014. In addition to new technology, it includes a complete refresh of the space with new furniture, display cases, draperies, student and faculty teaching space, and the preservation of the wood paneling and flooring.
