Missed Day of Giving? You can still make a gift!
Day of Giving 2022
Hope Changes Everything!

By giving to what you love on Day of Giving at Hope College, you can support the areas that impacted you the most: the departments, programs and causes you care most about. This is how change happens for Hope students today! 

This year, scholarships are still our greatest need, but regardless of where you give or how much you give, your support will all make a difference in the lives of students — ultimately changing everything!

So what are you waiting for? Help change something, today! 


Thank You!
