Beyond Donations: Engage, Inspire, and Connect

We understand that support comes in many forms. While financial donations are invaluable, there are other significant ways to give that contribute to our mission. Engaging with us through various initiatives helps spread awareness and strengthens the bonds within our community. Here are just a few ways you can make a difference:

Invite Us To Speak

Awareness is crucial in supporting Hope School Foundation’s mission of encouraging and providing support to all of Hope’s programs and services. By inviting us to speak at your events, you give us a platform to share our story and the impact of our work. This is a powerful way to build strong relationships and foster a deeper understanding of our goals within your community.  We look forward to speaking at your networking group, Rotary Club, Kiwanis Club,  Chamber of Commerce meeting, church group, or at any other club or organization.

More than awareness…
The Hope Speaker’s Bureau brings our expertise to you! We know that knowledge and education are the foundation for any strong society, so we are excited to present expert-led trainings to our fellow community members, free of charge.  We are happy to provide speakers for your school’s in-service days, trainings for first responders or any organization or group looking to create a more inclusive environment.

Inclusion is at the heart of what we do. We look forward to any opportunity to connect with our partners and the broader community to give insight to our impact on the population we serve. Inviting us to your events allows us to learn more about your community, share our mission, and strengthen the ties that bring us closer together. It’s a chance to celebrate our collective efforts and envision new ways to collaborate.

Host a Third-Party Fundraising Event

Third-party fundraising events are a fantastic way for supporters, community members, and partners to actively participate in bringing our mission to life. Whether it’s a charity run, a benefit concert, or a community bake sale, these events not only raise vital funds but also increase awareness and support for our cause. It’s an opportunity to be creative and engage your network in supporting a noble cause.
