On April 19, Scholarship Day of Giving raised awareness for the Hope Fund and over $140,000 for student scholarships. Since then we have received a number of questions about how to get involved with the effort to promote giving at Hope.
As someone closely connected to the college and already supporting the Hope Fund, we wanted to share a new initiative with you. As we near the end of the fiscal year on June 30, we would like to invite you to join us as a Hope Fund Champion.
We are looking for volunteers to connect with potential donors during the month of June. This connection can be by phone, email, social media, in person, or any other method that is convenient for you. This outreach will help engage more people in philanthropy at Hope, will increase our impact this year and will help us to finish strong.
Here’s how it works:
1. Complete this form by Friday, May 20.
2. You will be provided resources the week of May 23, which includes contact lists, talking points and action steps.
3. Use the month of June to make a connection and encourage participation.
4. Record your contacts and share updates with us.
We look forward to many meaningful connections that benefit our students in a direct and important way. Please consider sharing some of your time next month by joining us as a Hope Fund Champion. If you have questions, please contact me at 616.395.7366.
