Annual Giving

The Hope Fund directly supports Hope students.

Annual gifts to the college can also include gifts to specific departments or programs on campus:

  • What was your favorite activity at Hope?
  • What academic department shaped you and prepared you for your current career?

Give to many areas to support the college and current students.

Engineering, psychology, music, history and Hope Summer Repertory Theatre (just to name a few) can all benefit from your annual gift to Hope. Together, donors can create an unsurpassed educational experience through faithful stewardship of Hope's resources and gifts.

Invest in the future of Hope College and its students with a yearly gift — make your gift today!


Giving Tuesday is a single, global day of giving that brings together individuals from around the world and highlights their capacity to care for and empower others. On this day, we bring together the Hope College community to support student scholarships through the Hope Fund.
