Supporting Hope Hall
Hope Hall is a private, non-denominational, not-for-profit school designed for students with special learning needs who consistently experience frustration in the traditional classroom setting. Hope Hall is committed to the belief that when students are given respect and enough time in a supportive, multi-sensory learning environment, they can become successful learners.
From scholarships for our students to instructional supplies and maintenance, there is always a need for which we could use your financial assistance, gift-in-kind, or volunteer help.
To make a gift to Hope Hall, contact Shaunta Collier-Santos, Director of Development, at 585-426-5824, ext. 107 or
. Remember, your gift may be tax-deductible.
Thank you for your support!
The Future Full of Hope Appeal enables children who once dreaded school to experience the joy of learning.The actual cost to educate each child at Hope Hall is $13,000. Our tuition is $4,700 for grades 3-8; $4,900 for grades 9-12, leaving a deficit of approximately $9,500. Every dollar from our Future Full of Hope Appeal is used to make up this deficit and provide tuition assistance in the form of scholarships for children who need them.
Ask your United Way Campaign Coordinator for a pledge form. In the appropriate section, record the portion of your donation that you would like to go to "this organization:" HOPE HALL, "ID#" 2108.
Our tuition is $4,700 for grades 2/3-8; $4,900 for grades 9-12. We need to keep our tuition as affordable as possible because more than 80% of our families live at or below the poverty level as defined by HUD. The Scholarship program allows us to help the children who need our program but whose families are unable to pay the tuition. All donations to this program go directly to family tuition needs.
Path to Hope
Path to Hope offers donors an opportunity to purchase personalized bricks for our outside walkway for $100. These bricks provide a lasting tribute and a unique way to honor loved ones or to commemorate a special occasion. All proceeds from the Path to Hope walkway support the Building upkeep, repairs and renovations.
Connections to Hope
Connections to Hope offers donors an opportunity to purchase personalized bricks for our inside walkway for $500. These bricks provide a lasting tribute and a unique way to honor loved ones or to commemorate a special occasion. Likewise, businesses have the opportunity to bring awareness of their company to those who come to Hope Hall. All proceeds from the Connections to Hope walkway support Hope Hall’s mission to serve students with special learning needs through their high school years.

We have sponsorship opportunities for our Golf Tournament, Gala, and Walk for Hope. Sponsorships are event-specific.
Food For Thought – Snacks are provided in the morning every day for every student as well as during our afterschool programs. This program provides the funds to obtain the healthy snacks given to the students.

You can help us by saving labels from any of the hundreds of varieties of Campbell’s products. We also collect Box Tops for Education from your General Mills products.
There is an opportunity for those people using the Target charge card and TOPS BonusPlus card. Target charge card users can designate a school of their choice to receive a donation equal to 10% of their charges. You must mention this at the time of your purchase, and let them know that you would like this donation to go to Hope Hall.
When you purchase any participating TOPS brand, Full Circle™ and TopCare® products with your TOPS BonusPlus® card, TOPS contributes a percentage of your purchase to Hope Hall. You must register your BonusPlus card with the TOPS for Education program and indicate Hope Hall as your school choice.
With the help of St. Pauly Textiles, Hope Hall will collect used clothing throughout the entire school year instead of a one-time only clothing drive. A permanent — 24 hour — collection box is located at Hope Hall in the back parking lot, next to our playground fence. Your clothing donations will be reused in the U.S. and Third World countries. Your donations are tax deductible and Hope Hall will earn $40.00 for every 1,000 pounds donated.
