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 students in achieving their educational goals and empowering them to reach their full potential. Members combine their resources to make a greater collective impact on those 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.

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 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.
