Cherish Gifts

Did you know a Partner gift covers most (but not all) of the cost per student?
Cherish giving is a Partner gift + $3,750, to cover the full cost of education for one student
(minus the average family tuition contribution).

You are not just helping kids go to school. You are changing destinies, and my son is the proof.

How it Works


Partners provide 70% of the cost of education for one or more students.


Partners are then “matched” with students, and invited to meet face-to-face.


Partners are invited to two Partner Day events annually to interact with students and hear inspiring stories.


Partners receive handwritten student thank yous, HopeBriefs emails, and other insider updates communicating impact.


Partners multiply their joy by sharing Hope with friends at a tour or annual Evening of Hope gala.
