NEW HASP Facilities Update

We hope you have had a chance to visit the new HASP office and classroom on the main floor of Anderson Werkman, Suite 120!
We extend deep appreciation for the generosity of all the HASP members who have contributed to our HASP Facilities Fund this year. To date we have received approximately $220,000 toward our $450,000 goal to fully replenish this fund. Gifts range from $10 to $50,000 and every dollar is an investment in the future of our
organization.
The HASP Facilities Fund benefits us all by reducing our annual operating costs as well as enabling us to address future facility needs. Investment earnings are shared with the college in exchange for a rent-free facility on campus and numerous in-kind services (i.e., physical plant, copy and mailing center, computer and information technology support, etc.). This allows HASP membership and course fees to remain steady and affordable.
Fundraising is still active for this effort. If you would like to make a gift, we would love to know by May 1st, 2020, in order to properly recognize all donors at our annual meeting. Past and current facilities fund gifts of all sizes will receive recognition via HASP publications. In addition, there are two special recognition opportunities:
Donor Wall – Donors making leadership gifts of $5,000 (over up to five years) will receive recognition on a donor wall in the new HASP suite. Previous giving to the HASP facility fund can be counted toward hitting this
threshold.
Room Naming Opportunities – A variety of naming opportunities exist for spaces within the new facility. Friends or families may join together to meet a naming threshold. To date, we have received naming gifts for the
library, director’s office, and conference room. We are looking for partners for the classrooms, welcome and hospitality space, and work area.
All members are invited to make a gift or pledge via the HASP Facilities Fund gift/pledge cards mailed out in early December and are also available in the HASP office. Gifts can be one-time gifts or payable over five years, and be
made via stock, IRA roll-overs, or deferred gifts through wills and trusts. Checks can be made payable to Hope College with HASP Facilities Fund in the memo section.
If you would like additional information on the donor wall and/or room naming opportunities please contact Kim Mendels, HASP Director, mendels@hope.edu, 616.395.7919.
Thank you for your support!
