HOPE Giving Circle
What is the HOPE Giving Circle?
The acronym HOPE stands for Helping Others through the Power of Education. The HOPE
Giving Circle brings together influential women of diverse backgrounds with a common
goal of supporting women in achieving their educational goals and empowering them
to reach their full potential. Members combine their resources to make a greater collective
impact on the lives of women pursuing higher education at Harper College. Through
scholarship support, mentoring, professional development opportunities and other means,
the HOPE Giving Circle is committed to creating and enhancing educational and leadership
opportunities for women.

100 percent of gifts to the HOPE Giving Circle are tax-deductible and designated for current-use scholarships. The HOPE Scholarship Program provides financial support and on-going mentoring for female Harper College students who are completing their final year at Harper and continuing on to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelor's degree. Each scholarship award is $10,000.
HOPE Giving Circle Events
The HOPE Giving Circle meets four times per year for social, networking, and educational
