Year End Giving Guidelines

Hope College is deeply grateful for all the support we receive from our constituency that makes it possible to carry out our mission of educating students for lives of leadership and service. Many of you choose to do so through calendar year-end gifts, and we want to give you a few reminders to help ensure that your gift is credited to the 2023 tax year.

If you have questions concerning your year-end gift during this time, please contact the Philanthropy and Engagement team for assistance:
