As a board member of the HOPE Foundation, you will make a major difference in the lives of families across the Ozarks.

The HOPE Foundation is a children's charity that bridges the gap for families who are facing a pediatric emergency and who have become overwhelmed with the unexpected expenses associated with such a tragedy. As board members, we are obligated to be faithful stewards of our donors’ gifts, and we also are responsible for the fate of families seeking grants from our organization. It is important, and meaningful work!

We stress board meeting attendance at our bimonthly meetings. We also require you to vote by email on family requests, which can happen several times a month. Each board member is also required to raise at least $1,000 per calendar year for our cause.

The HOPE Foundation Board meets at the Community Blood Center of the Ozarks at 220 W. Plainview Rd Springfield, MO 65810 at 6 PM. 2019 meeting dates are as follows: February 7th, April 4th, June 6th, August 1st, October 3rd, and December 5th.

Other important 2019 event dates for HOPE include:
May 3 – Derby Gala at ChriShan Park
August 8-14 – Price Cutter Charity Championship at Highland Springs Country Club
