Educating students for lives of leadership and service is the foundation of Hope’s mission. Annual gifts to the Hope Fund create a foundation of financial security that makes the mission a reality. The Hope Fund is crucial in helping to meet the college’s immediate needs. We realize that not everyone can give big, but everyone can give something. Are you in? A Greater Hope starts with you.
- This year, Hope Fund gifts will have even greater effect as they help achieve the goals of A Greater Hope. The Hope Fund plays a significant role in the overall campaign.
The Hope Fund as Part of A Greater Hope, the Hope College Campaign
- Hope Fund dollars are used where needed most and are unrestricted. Gifts fund financial aid, technology upgrades, student services, and more.
- Tuition dollars cover only 76 percent of expenses related to each student’s Hope education. Voluntary contributions to the Hope Fund from alumni, parents, and friends help provide the remainder.
- Financial aid, campus facility improvements, and student-life programs depend increasingly on annual gifts to the Hope Fund. Every dollar given to the Hope Fund supports the college in six important ways.
