The Hope Venture is an incredible organization changing lives through education and health initiatives . I love how you can personally sponsor specific children and the Hope Venture does an incredible job of helping you feel connected to your sponsored child through communication and updates. They also do a terrific job of using the funds they receive to go directly to their programs. It is an amazing organization run by amazing people!!!

I am very impressed with the Hope Venture organization. Their staff have compassionate hearts to help hurting people. Their various projects provide hope to people. it is so important to help our citizens throughout the world.
I attended the Night for Hope fundraiser in October. The staff was able to navigate through all of the logistics of doing an outdoor event this year. I commend them for having a very professional, motivating event while providing a Covid safe environment.

I love the Hope Venture! The leadership and staff are awesome! They have such passion and spirit around the work they do. I love that they work directly with members of the communities their serving to make sure the money and resources donated are being used to properly support that population. I also think their student sponsorship program is sweet! Sponsors get direct communication from their student! So cool!

The Hope Venture is a nonprofit unlike many others that I've seen. Their goal is to provide hope and diginity to those around the world who make less than $1 dollar a day, a group of people who are largely forgotten about in this world. And they do so by helping the local people who are already over there working for those around them. They bring hope and support to those who are already doing good work, and to me that creates a perfect way to help lift others up.

I have felt personally touched by this organization in that they have sought me out as a college student at a large university and made me feel like I can be a part of the life-change that they promote. They are true to their mission of bringing hope and dignity to the most disadvantaged people in the world by hosting events, through their student sponsorship program, and other things through their social media. I have always felt like they cared about me on an individual level and like a part of their community through their events like the Run for Hope or the Night for Hope. I never feel emotionally manipulated or pressured to donate and they are adamant about finding creative and fun ways to fundraise throughout the year.

There are so many things I love about this nonprofit. Obviously the first thing is what they do but almost equally important is how they do it. The Hope Venture has an awesome model that every dollar I give it goes directly to projects. That is super encouraging for me knowing that my money is helping overseas! They have so many opportunities to get involved whether that is sponsoring a student in Uganda monthly, running miles for backups for children in India who need to go to school, or volunteering at an event they hold. The Hope Venture makes it easy to get involved and they make you feel like you are apart of the change (which is true)! They never pressure you but encourage you to take steps to help! Last, they have an incredibly kind staff that is easy to work with! I love The Hope Venture, I love what they do, and I love how they do it!
