"Endow Hope"

Scholarships in perpetuity because of you!

Hope High Dollars for Scholars has had an incredible ten years!  Thanks to generous Hope alumni and friends, we have awarded $363,000 in scholarships to 98 deserving Hope seniors. Now, in our eleventh year, we are on track to award an additional $45,000+ in scholarships to another group of deserving Hope students.  

In 2018, we launched the Hope High Dollars for Scholars Endowment Fund at the RI Foundation.  Thanks to the financial support of our generous donors, Hope seniors will have the benefit of the level of financial support we provide today.  We have invested $420,00 so far; our goal, by December 2023, is to have $500,000+ invested in the HHDfS Endowment Fund. Only $80,000 to go!  

A gift to the endowment should be made by clicking the Endowment link above or by writing a check to Hope High Dollars for Scholars, with a memo to indicate the HHDfS Endowment Fund.

Contact Jane Bermont, President, at jbermont@aol.com or 617-686-9158 to discuss Endowment Fund donation options.
