Annual Appeal – 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 $15,000. Our tuition is $5,o00 for grades 3-8 and $5,500 for grades 9-12, leaving a deficit of approximately $10,000. 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 $5,000 for grades 3-8; $5,500 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.

Legacy of Hope Society

Linda’s Cupboard opened in October 2010 in loving memory of Sister Diana Dolce’s sister, Linda Foster. Parents, faculty, staff, and supporters can donate food pantry items and household products to Linda’s Cupboard on a weekly basis. Every Thursday, food and other necessities are donated to Hope Hall families who struggle to make ends meet. Families are chosen based on their income level and family size.
Special thank you to Linda’s mom, Mrs. Betty Dolce, and to her brother and brother-in-law, Rob Dolce and Doug Lennox, for all they do to keep Linda’s Cupbord open and running carefully.
Thank you, also, to Sue Satter and Diane Camelio for the many hours they spend stocking shelves, Nikki Pagani, Kathy Della Porta, and JoAnn Belle-Isle who help with the shopping, to the teachers and staff of Hope Hall who contribute to the Cupboard weekly.
Currently, Linda’s Cupboard is in need of the following non-perishable items:
