There are many great charities out there. Why should you devote your resources to the Hope Clinic?

Unique Program

Hope is the only free medical clinic in Washtenaw county. We also have the largest food program in the area, and our excellent free dental program sets us apart as well. Our range of excellent services under one roof makes a convenient place for our clients. As the last strand of the social safety net, we are meeting needs that no one else meets. When people can't find help anywhere else, they come to Hope.


We are proud to have three consecutive years of 4 star ratings from Charity Navigator for exceptional accountability and transparency. You can be sure that your gift is having maximum impact for our clients. We are also listed as "top rated" by Great Nonprofits.

Hope is able to serve thousands of people each year through donations and our amazing volunteers. Because of our large volunteer team and in-kind donations, your dollar goes further. Each dollar given results in $3 worth of care to our clients. This allows you to maximize your giving.


At Hope we see the whole person and treat them with dignity and respect, believing that they are worthy of the best we have to offer. We take time to listen to their needs, and pray for them if they want prayer. 

We want to walk with people toward lasting healing, so we take the time to understand their issues and help them move forward.

Other ways to give

Endowment: Hope offers multiple options for contributions to Hope’s Endowments. Designated funding for the Dental, Medical and other programs are available. In addition, Hope partners with Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation. 

Planned Giving: Consider naming Hope Clinic as a beneficiary in your will or trust. Hope also partners with a number of third party entities willing to assist our supporters in setting up donor advised funds or other specialized giving arrangements.

Memorial & Tributes: Remember a loved one or friend and create a lasting legacy in their honor with a memorial gift. A tribute gift is a wonderful way to celebrate a special occasion, express thanks, or recognize someone dear to you. If you wish, you may designate your gift to support a specific Hope Clinic program or service. 

Stocks:  Hope accepts donations of stocks and other securities both for year-end tax contributions and IRA required minimum distributions (RMDs).

Matching Gifts:  Many employers sponsor matching gift programs and will match any charitable contributions made by their employees (sometimes even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses).  If your company is eligible, the impact of your gift to Hope Clinic may be doubled or tripled!  To find out if your employer participates in matching gifts, contact your human resources department.
