Hope Philanthropies was founded to address the needs of patients, caregivers, and families battling Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias.

The word philanthropy is from the Greek word philanthropia, meaning love to all mankind.

The name Hope reflects the memory and inspiration of Hope Chance, the president’s daughter. Hope had muscular dystrophy. She passed in 2013 from an undiagnosed pulmonary embolism. Today, her dad continues as a family caregiver in the fight against muscular dystrophy.

One day, on one of many business trips, Jeff saw a rainbow resting on the very building he was visiting and he knew Hope was there, marking his path. Today, the Hope Philanthropies’ logo includes a rainbow reminder of the call and mission to bless the lives of others who care for someone in need.
