Many of you participated in Scholarship Day of Giving and we are grateful for your support. Thanks to you, we raised more than $162,000 — all for student scholarships through the Hope Fund. The number of gifts and the total raised both exceeded last year’s day of giving.
On behalf of the Hope College community, and especially our students, thank you for your generosity!
Your support brings Hope’s mission to life for countless accomplished students, making a Hope education accessible for many who might otherwise deem it impossible.
