Brand new to our annual Summit?
Watch our recap of last year’s event, and see for yourself why it’s our biggest fundraiser of the year!

Why we summit

Last year we hosted 720 guests from a record 163 companies, who were all there to raise money for our housing programs.

This year, HIF hopes to raise over $800,000 from sponsorships, ticket sales, fund-a-need, and our auction to put towards the success of all three of our programs:

  • Emergency housing grants to help keep individuals and families housing secure
  • Affordable housing to prevent displacement and empower people working in our communities
  • Renovation projects to uplift transitional housing so individuals and families on the path to housing stability have secure places to live

Individual Tickets

Ticket purchases for the 2023 Summit are now closed.

HIF has secured a block of rooms at the Hilton Signia. As this new Summit venue is a luxury class property (and due to high demand on Summit weekend with a convention in town), room prices, while significantly discounted, are more than in previous years.

The HIF room block discount expired on Tuesday, August 15. Please use the link below to book a room at the normal Hilton rate.
