Hope Endowment is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for India’s underprivileged, abused, and disadvantaged children who have been otherwise left behind. The scope of our support is limited only by the availability of resources. We serve children between the ages of 3 to 18 years of age. All children are provided with housing, food, clothing, medical care, education, as well as social services.
Hope Endowment has reorganized our homes in India to better align resources and needs. We have consolidated to one new children’s home in Dumda, which has the capacity to house 240 children. This has allowed us to maximize our resources and have a greater impact. We expect the facility to be fully functional by the end of 2016.
Fundraising dollars go towards the direct care of the children. In fact, 100% of individual donations go directly to support our efforts in India. Administrative and fundraising costs are funded by a combination of corporate sponsors, private benefactors, and the Hope Endowment founding members.
When Hope Endowment started, we made a simple promise: shelter, educate, and nurture a child from youth to adulthood. Our goal is allow the children to stay in our home until they are independent and can live on their own. Due to adoption rules in India, children are not able to be to be adopted from private children’s homes. We need to ensure that we can support them throughout, so that they are not abandoned yet again.
Due to the Dumda building construction project and the increased numbers of children that we will serve, we are growing and expanding our fundraising strategies as well. We continue to ask for corporate sponsorships because our needs have surpassed what we can do within our individual donor donations.
