This is how H.O.P.E.’s charity application process works every year.
H.O.P.E. has a Board of Directors of 7 and a General Membership of approximately 35 ppl.
Each year we post our charity application on our website around the first week of August for 2 months. Then in the first week of October we close the application.
The information provided by all the vetted applicants gets sent to the H.O.P.E. members, this helps them to decide on the Charites they would like to receive H.O.P.E. funding.
Our membership then vote on the charities, some time around the end of October, at our fall General meeting.
Only the selected charities receive a call as we have too many applicants to reach out to all.
We then announce the chosen charities at our Celebration of H.O.P.E. in Late November.
At this annual event, the Celebration of H.O.P.E., we present the cheques to the charities selected for the current year, and announce the new charities selected for the up and coming event year.
