The purpose of The Hope Fund is to provide assistance for unmet needs of children in Greater Franklin County, with a particular emphasis on removing barriers to enable low-income children to engage in a wide variety of enriching experiences in which they would not otherwise be able to participate.
Because the intent of The Hope Fund is to raise aspirations for area youth and expose young people to opportunities they may not otherwise engage in, support will be considered for a broad range of activities. This includes, but is not limited to: therapeutic recreation; athletic team participation; camps (including summer camps and those for special needs students); UMF Fitness and Recreation and Center memberships; after school programs (i.e., in arts, robotics, etc.). Funding could be used for registration fees and/or for equipment or materials needed to participate.
Assistance through The Hope Fund is determined by an application which is available by clicking the link below and at the United Way office, 218, Fairbanks Rd., Farmington.
