In a world filled with complexities, shortages, requirements and more, the New Hope Foundation plays a big role in the services and “extras” New Hope provides. The Foundation bridges the gap between what funding provides, and what our organization provides to those we serve.
New Hope is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, so your monetary gift may qualify for tax deductions.
For those interested in supporting New Hope financially, several special funds are available to ensure your gift benefits those we serve and our organization in a way that aligns with your wishes.
Donors may choose to honor the life or memory of a loved one or friend by making a memorial donation to New Hope in their name. When making a memorial donation, please include the name of the person you’re wishing to remember, as well as a family contact and address for the designee. New Hope will notify the family that a donation has been made in memory of their loved one, only sharing the donors name and address (no donation amounts will be announced).
Your honoree’s family or spouse will receive notification of your thoughtful gift within 2-3 weeks of your donation.
New Hope’s Annual Fund supports recurring needs such as adaptive equipment, equipment upgrades, vocational supplies and programming, and capital expenditures.
Building and Equipment Fund
The Building and Equipment Fund addresses brick and mortar needs at New Hope, both on-campus and at off-site New Hope properties. This fund assists with new building projects, renovations, repair and replacement of equipment, grounds improvement and other structural projects.
This Fund was developed to provide a supplemental source of income to assist in paying recurring and special needs. The Endowment Fund provides the donor an opportunity to make a gift that will keep on giving and help New Hope save for the future.
Monetary gifts received from planned gifts such as bequests, life insurance, retirement funds and memorials are 100% directed to the Endowment Fund unless otherwise designated.
Client Special Needs Fund
The Special Needs Fund was established to assist those in New Hope’s care with personal expenses when no other funds are available.
Frank H. Hermsen Staff Development Fund
The Staff Development Fund assists New Hope employees with educational and training expenses to enhance their skills, knowledge and abilities enabling them to better serve New Hope and those we care for. Educational opportunities may include traditional classes and courses, industry specific training, specialized regional or national in-services or other training sessions as deemed appropriate by New Hope’s training department.
Issues such as funding sources and technology are constantly changing in our field, and there is a crucial need for New Hope staff to receive the necessary specialized training in these areas. This fund allows a greater number of New Hope’s current and future leaders the opportunity to advance their knowledge, skills and abilities.
