Missed Day of Giving? You can still make a gift!
Student, Faculty and Staff Resources
Students. The heart of Hope College.

During Hope College's Day of Giving, you'll have the opportunity to give to the following departments and programs that serve Hope students and members of the faculty and staff:

The Boerigter Center for Calling and Career

Programming for the Boerigter Center enables all Hope students, beginning in their first semester, to understand their strengths, engage in experiences that directly connect to career preparation, discern vocational and life goals, and ascertain clear next steps toward their future. Discern. Prepare. Pursue.

COVID-19 Relief Fund

Your gift will help provide personal protective equipment and other supplies our students, faculty and staff need for in-person learning this semester and next fall. 

Disability and Accessibility Resources

Our services are individualized to ensure reasonable accommodations for students with documented disabilities, to promote and support students in self-advocacy, and to educate faculty, staff and students about disabilities. We believe that all students should be able to get there, fully participate and access all material.

Office of Possibilities

The Office of Possibilities ignites college-wide innovation to advance the future of learning. Launched by President Scogin in the fall of 2020, the Office of Possibilities is the “what could be” engine of Hope College, cultivating a culture of possibility thinking and persistent imagining where ideas flow and people flourish.  

Student Development Program Fund

Student Development utilizes the program fund to:

  • Support the whole-person development of each student
  • Enhance the student experience through programs, services, partnerships and connections
  • Promote an inclusive campus climate
  • Help students successfully navigate campus life

Van Wylen Library

Van Wylen Library serves as a vibrant center of intellectual and cultural life at Hope by assuming a significant educational role in a college community committed to excellence in learning and teaching. The library provides an inviting atmosphere, access to numerous print and digital materials, and innovative technologies and services to deliver information and scholarly resources to patrons.
