        “We make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give.”
         Winston Churchill

It’s about the children. Anything and everything we do is for the children of AHOPE. The children at AHOPE have been through personal trauma and tragedy. These are children who literally have no place to go; children who are infected with HIV; children who need love, care, nurturing and hope; and children who would melt your heart with their smiles.

When you give to AHOPE you give to the children.

With your help we can achieve our goal of $35,000 a month. Donations include but are not limited to corporate and foundation giving, individual gifts, planned giving, and more.

Sponsor a Child

Sponsoring a child gives a face and a story to your donation. You will be personally connected with a child at AHOPE while making a lasting investment in their future. As a sponsor you will receive a photo and an initial child report about your sponsored child. Periodic updates about your sponsored child will also be sent to you.

A suggested minimum donation of $50.00 a month or $600 a year can change a child’s life. Because this amount provides only partial support, children are usually assigned more than one sponsor. You may also give more. The sponsorship donation is tax-deductible.

You can choose to sponsor a child from Little AHOPE, our Group Home Program, or the Independent Living Program.

Cooperative Sponsorships

        If your friends want to join you in the good work you are doing for AHOPE, you can set up a Cooperative Sponsorship. Share the joy of supporting a child. If you gather 10 friends together you can each pay $42.00 and sponsor one child for a year. Or if everyone pays just $42.00 each month, your group will cover a yearly sponsorship for a different child each month. That would make a huge difference!

Sponsorship Sign-up

        The easiest way to sign up for any kind of sponsorship is to go to www.networkforgood.org, type in AHOPE for Children and register there.
