Support Student Scholarships on #GivingTuesday

Join a Global Movement

#GivingTuesday is a single, global day of giving that brings together individuals from around the world and highlights their capacity to care for and empower others. Today, we are bringing together the Hope College community to support student scholarships through the Hope Fund. 

Here at Hope, 95% of students receive financial aid. You can help support these future leaders and global citizens by making a gift to the Hope Fund. 

Our #GivingTuesday goal is $18,000 in just 24 hours. This is the equivalent of a presidential scholarship. If we reach our goal, a group of donors has agreed to provide a 1:1 match. Together, we can make $36,000 available to support Hope students in one day!

Join the movement and give today.

Why Scholarships?

Gifts to the Hope Fund are used for student scholarships. Scholarships not only make attending Hope possible for many deserving students, they also help limit encumbering students with excessive loan debt (now up to almost $1.3 trillion nationally). The percentage of Hope graduates with debt and the average student loan debt per graduate are below the national average. In addition, repayment rates are well above national average. Our goal is to keep improving as we aim to be the best value among leading liberal arts colleges. We will do this, with your help, by providing an unsurpassed educational experience through faithful stewardship and development of resources. 

We want Hope graduates to focus their life's calling on today's most important issues, not just on a path influenced by economics alone. In order to become agents of Hope who live faithfully into their vocation, they need to be free to pursue professional interests, go on to graduate school, or serve others. Your gift to the Hope Fund helps make this possible.
