Upcoming Events


The United States and countries around the world face a major public health concern with the current outbreak of the novel (new) coronavirus (COVID-19). We are aware that many of our grantees’ and supporters’ institutions have implemented travel restrictions to help deter the spread of the virus. In response, Hope Funds is continually re-assessing the status of our upcoming events. We encourage you to monitor our website to stay abreast of the latest updates.
