A New Way To Membership with Monthly Contributions

We offer a great new way to make a contribution to the Giving Circle of HOPE with automatic monthly donations.

Each month the amount you specify will be charged automatically to the credit card you provide. This option allows you to contribute throughout the year. It also gives us a better sense of the number of grants we will be able to support earlier in the grant review process. Before you know it, you’ll be a full voting member!
