Hands of Hope

April 2017 Opportunity


The 100 Holes of Golf outing is Hands of Hope's biggest fundraising event of the year. This year we are trying to raise $40,000. If we hit our goal, we will also receive matching grants of $35,000 which will bring our total fundraising efforts to $75,000.

With your support, we can continue to be involved in the lives of foster kids, providing opportunities to help them feel love and care in the most uncertain times of their lives. Because of your generosity, we can continue to partner with children's homes in countries like: India, Ethiopia, El Salvador, and Ukraine to have a helping hand in changing the outcome of the children's lives with hope. And because of you, we can help children find forever homes.
