Missed Day of Giving? You can still make a gift!
#Give2Hope
Give to what you love!

On Day of Giving here at Hope College, you can give through Hope by supporting the departments, programs and causes you care most about, so more students can turn knowledge into action, working for the world and with the world. 

Join thousands of alumni, students, families, friends, neighbors, faculty and staff as we come together to give back.

You have an opportunity to build on last year’s incredible impact and to support our resilient students, faculty, and researchers who are making a positive difference across the globe during this critical moment.
