Your donation makes the common thread stronger and helps more people find common ground.
In 2021, we enter the 27th summer session of Common Ground on the Hill. Those years have seen remarkable programming across a spectrum of the traditional arts that is complex, inclusive and restorative to the human spirit.
The formula that creates the Common Ground on the Hill program requires financial resources beyond what student tuition generates. So, part of the operation of Common Ground requires asking for financial donations from those who care about the institution.
Common Ground on the Hill is recognized as a tax-exempt organization under section 501 (c) (3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. Donations to Common Ground on the Hill are tax deductible.
Please consider a donation to keep this program of the traditional arts alive and well.
