IMPACT

The impacts of The Hope Summit extend beyond just one weekend per year. Through education, the arts, storytelling, summit scholarships, and microgrants for small community projects, we seek to support community-driven solutions in our region and develop young leaders from around the world.

Next Generation Fund

To transform our world through community-driven solutions, we must invest in the emerging leaders and stewards of communities. At The Hope Summit, we are committed to developing and accelerating young emerging leaders through mentorship, workshops, equitable access, community, and scholarships for 100 students and early career professionals to receive fully-sponsored Conference Passes.

Funds for The Hope Summit Next Generation Fund are raised annually from ticket sales and donations to The Hope Summit and generous support by our partners like the Sustainable Ocean Alliance.

Applications for Next Generation Fund Scholarships open April 22nd and close June 23.

The Hope Summit Book Club

Join us for The Hope Summit Book Club, a community of environmentally-conscious lifelong learners from across the world. With quarterly book recommendations linked to the current theme of The Hope Summit, readers can engage virtually through webinars and an online community or in person at Buxton Books in Charleston, South Carolina leading up to The Hope Summit. These books will be available through independent bookseller Buxton Books and at The Hope Summit Conference Book Store.

The Hope Summit Works Fund

To transform our world through community-driven solutions, we must invest in community infrastructure. Through the Carolina Ocean Alliance, The Hope Summit organizers seek community leaders, small non-profits, educators, and local stewards to partner with on a few projects per year with costs ranging up to $1000. These funds are raised annually from ticket sales and donations at The Hope Summit and from generous support by our partners.
