Annual Giving

Annual giving at Hope starts with the Hope Fund. You can make an immediate and life-shaping impact for students, and those who teach them, through the combined power of a community of donors.

Crowdfunding is the process of raising money for a project through many donors using an online platform. Hope launched our crowdfunding platform in 2016 to connect donors to students and faculty in ways that empower philanthropy to make a direct and meaningful difference. Here, your small (or large) gift can make a tremendous impact and everyone can help a project succeed by harnessing the power of their own networks and hitting “SHARE.” It's new, it’s different and we can't wait to see where Hope students, faculty and donors take it.
