Judge Caprio to Deliver Keynote Speech at Hope High Dollars for Scholars Award Ceremony

On Tuesday, May 15, 2018, Hope High Dollars for Scholars® (HHDfS), an affiliate of Scholarship America, will host its Fifth Annual Awards Dinner at the Shriners Imperial Room, One Rhodes Place, Cranston, RI.

Twelve Hope seniors will share in scholarships totaling more than $50,000. Most of these scholarships are renewable for four years, supporting college completion. (Since 2012, HHDfS has awarded $152,000 in scholarships to 54 Hope High Scholars.)

Providence Municipal Chief Judge Frank Caprio will be the dinner’s keynote speaker. While attending law school in the mid-sixties, Judge Caprio was a Hope High School civics teacher. He’s fondly remembered by many HHDfS Board members and donors.

“Winning a scholarship creates a special kind of magic. The financial benefit is obvious — and greatly appreciated. The magic comes in the form of honoring a scholar’s accomplishments. Sending a scholar to college with confidence is truly magical.” Jane Rosenbloom Bermont, Founder & President, HHDfS

Exciting Endowment Fund News

HHDfS has had an amazing nine years and in 2021 we will be celebrating our tenth year of scholarship awards! Because of your generous support, HHDfS has awarded 88 scholarships worth $320,000! Our 2020 Scholars are ready to begin their freshmen years. They face unique and challenging circumstances but are excited to embrace their college dreams.

As our 2020 Scholars look to their futures, HHDfS is doing the same. We are taking on an ambitious challenge–building an endowment fund to ensure that future Hope students will continue to benefit from the financial support we provide today.

  • In 2018, HHDFS established an endowment fund at the Rhode Island Foundation. (rifoundation.org)
  • The Rhode Island Foundation administers many scholarship funds and has many years of experience managing endowed funds.
  • To date, the HHDfS Endowment Fund has a growing investment of $180,000.
  • Our goal is to have $500,000 invested by 2023.

We want to ensure that our mission to provide college scholarships for deserving Hope students continues in perpetuity. We ask that you join with us to invest in hope” so that future Hope seniors will have the benefit of the financial support we provide today. We are beginning to reach out to donors to ask if they will now become an Endowment Donor and consider a major gift or a multi-year donation through 2023. To date, over 30 donors have made such a commitment.

On behalf of our 88 Scholars, thank you again for our nine successful years.
