About us


The Raising Hope Foundation was formed with a focus on supporting children in need and their families.  Together with our kids, and the support of our community, we strive to positively influence the lives of others.

In recent years we have supported various organizations such the Arms Wide Open Foundation for Childhood Cancer (AWOFCC), HomeFront of NJ, the Trenton Boys & Girls Club Bike Exchange, Soles4Soles, Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, Mei Mei’s wishes, the C.A.R.E.S. institute, Seeds to Sew International, and Drew’s Hope just to name a few.  We have collected thousands of books from our community to support inner city Philadelphia schools, and hundreds of bikes that benefit the Boys and Girls club of Trenton with their sales proceeds.  We have delivered trucks of furniture, clothes, and household goods for families in need in Trenton.  We have held community shoe drives to collect gently used shoes and delivered them to underprivileged areas in the world that need them.  Together with the support of our local friends and families we held a Shave 4 a Cure event to raise over $40,000 for pediatric cancer research.  We intend to continue with some of these events yearly, as well as initiate new projects that inspire us. To see more of our events and how you can get involved, please browse through our site and contact us with questions.

We believe that while working together we can accomplish much more, and hope to inspire our next generation to embrace the spirit of generosity while sharing their talents and abilities.

We are Raising Hope for a future we can believe in.
