Raising HOPE invites you to our 4th annual

of Women Mentors

As women mentoring women to success, we provide mentors and financial assistance to local women in an effort to increase their potential for self-sufficiency.  Whether they are pursuing academic, personal, or vocational goals, mentees consistently point to the power of having someone who believes in you, someone who is willing to take the time to listen and guide you.  Mentees who succeed credit their mentors with making it possible.

It is only fitting to honor those women in the community who have mentored other women, providing them with the Help, Opportunity, Passion, and Empowerment they needed to succeed.

The Raising HOPE Leadership Council will appoint a committee to review all submissions and choose up to five women to be honored, based on a variety of factors.  Ideally we’d like to have the opportunity to select nominees who represent the increasing diversity of women in Ulster County.  They can be mothers, sisters, grandmothers, teachers, friends, aunts, neighbors, etc.  Any woman who has made a significant difference in the life of another woman through her support, guidance or encouragement would be an appropriate nominee.

Show your support, become a sponsor! Deadline is May 26, 2017

Responding is easy and online. Just click here to RSVP today!

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Su Marcy at 845-331-4199, x2 or email us directly.

A fun family night out!


Thanks to you, we raised $1,000 for Raising HOPE programs in Ulster County from this year’s Paint & Sip Event!  Stay tuned, we hope to do another one next year!
