The generosity of Hope Services’ donors and volunteers makes it possible for people with developmental disabilities to be valued and participating members of their communities. At Hope Services, we believe that the world is a better place when people with disabilities are fully integrated and accepted in all aspects of our culture. Your donation helps make this vision a reality.

Honor and Memorial Gifts
Celebrate a special person in your life. Make a gift in honor or in memory of a loved one. Please contact Hope’s Development Associate, Angela Mazza, at 408-284-2862 to make the gift or make the gift online.
Many companies and governmental agencies have programs that enable their employees to make donations through payroll deductions. If you would like to support Hope Services through your workplace giving program, please look for “Hope Services” in your workplace giving campaign brochure then note the corresponding designation code number, and fill it in on your pledge card. If you do not find a listing, then simply write Hope Services, 30 Las Colinas Lane, San Jose, CA 95119 on your pledge card.
Many companies will match their employees’ charitable gifts one-to-one, and some will even match two—or three—to one. Check with your employer to find out if your company has a matching gift program and what the process is for arranging the matching gift.
Planned and Endowment Gifts
Make Hope Services part of your future plans. The rewards go far beyond the potential tax savings.
The Hope Services Endowment Fund ensures that we are able to meet the growing needs of our clients, now and into the future. By donating to the fund, you’ll help to ensure a lifetime of our services for our current clients and those who come after them. Your gift to the Hope endowment also helps to offset natural fluctuations in annual fundraising. A gift of any size today will make an impact for years to come!

- Wills and Bequests
- Gifts of Appreciated Stock (Assets)
- Charitable Gift Annuities
