Campaign Overview


A Greater Hope, the Hope College Campaign, aims primarily to increase the college’s endowment, both to secure our long-term future and to improve our ability to serve students today. Its goal—to improve access and affordability—will ensure that Hope’s rigorous academic program and vibrant Christian environment will be accessible to talented students who both benefit from and contribute to the college and its vitality.

In pursuing Hope’s highest potential, our constituencies have created a culture of continuous improvement—a passion, really—to be the very best. In ever-increasing numbers, students want to be a part of this grand tradition—exceptionality in the academic program, superiority in athletics and co-curricular activities, and excellence in character and faith development. Hope is recognized as a place that positively influences young men and women for time and eternity. We call now on all who value the noble mission of the college—and who desire to preserve Hope with distinction into the future—to participate generously in this campaign. Your investment will give a greater Hope to generations of students.
