The Guadalupe Center Hope Society was established to honor and recognize the generous supporters who have chosen to create a lasting legacy that includes the Guadalupe Center in their estate plans.
The Guadalupe Center Hope Society celebrates the contribution and vision of our most charitable donors and challenges others to consider leaving legacy gifts for the future.
• You transform lives - You offer children in our community access to high-quality educational programs. Parents from low-income households want a better future for their children but often cannot afford to make that a reality. Your gift allows children in Immokalee to prosper and reach their full potential.
• You provide hope - You reach out to children and families in need with life-changing opportunities. Underprivileged students are able to enter elementary school prepared for success. At-risk students are able to see a brighter tomorrow, and academically capable but financially needy high school students have a path to a college degree.
• You change the future - Supporting the Guadalupe Center impacts a child, changes a future, empowers a family and is an investment in an entire community. Students complete our programs and graduate college with degrees in an array of fields, going on to lead successful careers.

"Our involvement with the Guadalupe Center began 12 years ago when a member of the Guadalupe Center Board of Trustees first told us about the work they do. Then he followed-up with a trip to Immokalee. There we saw with our own eyes how their programs change the lives of thousands of Immokalee children. We made a commitment that day to become part of the Guadalupe family—a service commitment that has brought us immeasurable joy and countless precious memories over the following years. We recently made an unrestricted planned giving bequest to the Center, allowing us to continue our commitment after we are gone."
Susan and Don Popejoy-Vice Chair, Guadalupe Center Board of Trustees
