Vision of Hope Resilience Fund


 Help us raise $500,000 for the Resilience Fund


Help us raise $500,000 for the Resilience Fund


Sweeping closures of businesses have impacted the majority of our Vision of Hope families. We project a 50% reduction in tuition collection over the next several months, leading to a significant shortfall in each school’s ability to cover monthly expenses, including teacher salaries.

Your gift to the Resilience Fund will help keep our virtual school doors open to:

Keep teachers teaching

Keep students learning

Keep families enrolled

Every gift of any size helps support our mission to provide quality, affordable Catholic education for children of our inner-city elementary schools. Thank you!

Book of Dreams Wish List


Welcome to the 2019-2020 Book of Dreams Wish List for our schools. Book of Dreams presents opportunities to enrich our schools with gifts that are beyond their limited budgets. While our parents make significant sacrifices to pay tuition, their contributions do not cover all costs, and each school has needs. You may also sponsor a student for a year, quarter, month, or a week. Enjoy reading this year’s Book of Dreams online and decide how you can help. Click here to support the Book of Dreams online. You will be asked to designate the amount of your gift, select the school, and specify the wish list item(s) you want to fund. You may also mail a check directly to Vision Hope or directly to the school you wish to support and indicate which items you are supporting on your​ ​check​.

Koins for Kids


Every year students in the 21 elementary and high schools affiliated with the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose personally demonstrate the Dominican mission through Koins for Kids. Their efforts support Vision of Hope’s Annual Fund. We especially thank the students from St. Ignatius of Loyola School, who donated $5,032 and St. Catherine’s Academy who collected $3,100, making their schools our top Koins for Kids donors for 2018-2019 annual fund! Since Koins for Kids began in 1998, those quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies have totaled $739,278! Vision of Hope schools have certainly done their part, with contributions totaling $325,012! We are so grateful to all our Dominican schools for participating in this annual collection, and we thank each and every student who donates. It’s all about kids helping kids. Click here to donate to Koins for Kids on behalf of your school.

We can also tell you about Vision of Hope’s Legacy Circle, which honors those who have included Vision of Hope in their estate planning.
