Gift Planning

Dimnent Heritage Society


Marc and Patty BaerIn the end, it's about Hope students. By becoming a member of the Dimnent Heritage Society, you will join 700 classmates, community members and friends of the college who are helping to increase the quality of a Hope education while keeping it affordable. Dimnent Heritage Society members have included Hope College as a beneficiary in their estate planning, as we did several years ago.

For us, this provided an alternative to making a major gift during our lifetime while becoming part of a global community committed to Hope growing as a college that provides an exceptional educational experience in a caring, Christian environment. Today's and tomorrow's students will be grateful that you designated Hope College among those institutions you truly care about.
