Since its conception, Hilltop Wealth & Tax Solutions has taken community service as a core value that we practice as often as we can, inviting and encouraging our clients to participate with us. Over the years, service has taken the form of hands-on volunteer work at Gleaners Community Food Bank, the Food Bank of Northern Indiana, RiverBend Cancer Services and Pet Refuge of South Bend. Conducting a toy drive for Toys for Tots is an embedded part of the annual Christmas open house at the Mishawaka office and our financial experience has been lent to Clay Church and the Beacon Health Foundation.
In 2022, Hilltop realized a long-term goal of forming our own 501c3 organization to enable Hilltop to expand our community service work. Hilltop Kids will strive to raise funds in support of organizations that provide relief to food scarcity, build programs that focus on the health and well-being of children and in an effort for long-term financial security, teach financial literacy.
With the 501c3, non-profit status in place, the Hilltop team will work to raise funds for non-profit organizations whose missions align with our mission and objectives. These efforts may take the form of direct assistance, fund raising, grant writing and fulfillment.
With sincere gratitude to our clients, guests and Hilltop team members who made the initial contributions to Hilltop Kids, our first grants were made in December using funds raised at our 2022 golf outing, the dunk tank at the summer open house and a 50/50 at the annual Cubs game. Your contributions became the grants that we made to the Madison STEAM Academy, the Family & Children’s Center and Cultivate Food Rescue.
We are currently making plans for our 2023 fund-raising efforts and look forward to sharing this information with our clients and asking them to participate with us. Watch this space!
We believe that we can have fun, another core Hilltop tenant, while doing good.
