High Hopes for Hope High







We can hardly believe that in May 2021, HHDfS will celebrate 

10 years of scholarships!

Since 2012, we have awarded $320,000 in scholarships to 88 Hope seniors.

 We could not have done it without you!

You can and you are making a difference!

Hope is the thing with feathers

That perches in the soul

And sings the tune without words

And never stops at all

Exciting Endowment Fund News

Scholarships in perpetuity because of you!

HHDfS has had an amazing journey and in 2021 we will be celebrating our tenth year of scholarship awards! Because of your generous support, HHDfS has awarded 88 scholarships worth $320,000!  Our 2020 Scholars are ready to begin their freshmen years.  They face unique and challenging circumstances but are excited to embrace their college dreams.


As our 2020 Scholars look to their futures, HHDfS is doing the same.  We are taking on an ambitious challenge--building an endowment fund to ensure that future Hope students will continue to benefit from the financial support we provide today.


  • In 2018, HHDFS established an endowment fund at the Rhode Island Foundation.  (rifoundation.org)
  • The Rhode Island Foundation administers many scholarship funds and has many years of experience managing endowed funds. 
  • As of March 2021, the HHDfS Endowment Fund has a growing investment of $320,000. 
  • Our goal is to have $500,000 invested by 2023.


We want to ensure that our mission to provide college scholarships for deserving Hope students continues in perpetuity. We ask that you join with us to "invest in hope" so that future Hope seniors will have the benefit of the financial support we provide today.   We are beginning to reach out to donors to ask if they will now become an Endowment Donor and consider a major gift or a multi-year donation through 2023.  To date, over 50 donors have made such a commitment.
