How does the alumni match work?
A generous donor family will match all new donor* alumni gifts made to the Hope Fund or endowed scholarships and funds. The matching amount will help kick-start Hope Forward and further the goal of fully funding tuition for every student.
*A new alumni donor is an alum that did not make a gift to one of these funds during the last fiscal year (July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2021).
How do I designate my gift to a specific department or program?
First, select the "Category" from the first drop-down menu. Then, choose the specific department or program "Fund Designation" from the second drop-down menu.
How do I designate my gift to more than one department or program?
Once you make your first designation, select "+ Add another gift to your donation" to designate more than one area for your gift.
What if I don’t see the area I want to support?
If you wish to give to a very specific fund not listed on the drop-down menu, please select "other" in the first drop-down list and "other" in the second drop-down list. Then type in the area you'd like to support.
Is my gift tax-deductible?
Yes. Contributions to support specific areas of Hope College are tax-deductible as allowed by law. You will receive a receipt for your donation.
