A Successful 2018 at HOPE Concludes with Our End-of-Year Giving Campaign


Each year during the holiday giving season, HOPE is astounded by the generosity of our community. This year we launch our End-of-Year Giving Campaign with a goal set to raise more than $11K to support our mission of creating stable, affordable homes for people with developmental disabilities.

Donations made through our End-of-Year Giving Campaign will directly fund renovations at our newest property on Redondo Ave in Long Beach. These units are set to open in 2019 and will be home to seven people with developmental disabilities moving out of less-independent settings.

This campaign always offers community members several ways to support our mission. Starting in November, HOPE constituents will receive a letter and email from HOPE Board Member Kelly Sutton sharing her reasons for supporting our work and providing an opportunity to give.

Next up is #Giving Tuesday on November 22nd, which will provide donors with a way to give back online and through Facebook. #GivingTuesday is a day of philanthropic celebration taking place on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. This event kicks off the charitable season when many people focus on their holiday giving and search for different ways to be generous. Remember to consider HOPE!

Finally, in early December, our HOPE Helps Gift Catalog will be emailed to donors to allow them the chance to choose a home gift item or renovation project to benefit our residents, while simultaneously honoring a loved one with a free personalized holiday card. Items can be selected that improve mobility for our residents (such as ADA sinks), support increased self-reliance (like washers & dryers), or assist with socialization (like patio furniture). We will send a complimentary card with every HOPE Helps Gift Catalog purchase you make to let your family and friends know about the special donation you gave in their name.

Give today and become a hero in the lives of our residents! Your contribution will directly empower HOPE to create more housing stability for our most vulnerable neighbors.
