More Hope Foundation, Inc.

"Educating the next generation"

 

Here are a few things we would like you to know up front about the More Hope Foundation.  

Our Purpose

The purpose of the More Hope Foundation is to alleviate the students financial burdens of attending a post secondary school.  To this end the More Hope Foundation will provide scholarships to worthy students that are enrolled in a college or university in the State of Georgia .  Preference in awarding the Scholarships will be given to students that are pursuing a degree in Education, Healthcare or Engineering. 

Our Funding

The funding for the More Hope Foundation comes from individuals, corporations, fundraising events and it's own endowment.  Unless otherwise approved by a unanimous vote by the Board of Directors any and all funds raised will be split in half.  The first half of the funds will be deposited into the endowment.  The other half will be used for funding the current year scholarship awards.  

In order to avoid the problems of other foundations endowments it is the policy of the More Hope Foundation that unless otherwise approved by a unanimous vote by the Board of Directors any and all funds placed in the endowment will be invested in a S&P 500 mutual fund.  The real dollar profits gained from the investments of the endowment will be used for funding the current year scholarship awards.    

Executive, Officer, Director and Trustees Pay

The More Hope Foundation is a charity.  The individuals running the More Hope Foundation are doing it for a better tomorrow.  They are all paid nothing for their efforts. Again the More Hope Foundation is a charity.  The good work that the More Hope Foundation does is its own reward.  Please see our current IRS for 990 to verify this fact.  Also you should note the Conflict of Interest policy.  Both of these are here to put our donors at rest that when they donate their money to us that is being used as we have described here.  

We do not provide gym memberships, country club memberships or any other paid for memberships for our people.  Again this is a charity.

These individuals are reimbursed for direct receipt proven expenses related to the Foundation events or projects.
