The non-profit corporation was formed on May 15th, 2010 and is managed by an Advisory Board of Directors. The board is comprised of volunteers originally from Mt. Hope, WV, with representation from local businesses and churches.
The Foundation's overall philosophy is grounded in 3 powerful principles:
1. Unity of effort results from coming together with a common purpose.
2. Progress results from people working together regardless of race, religion, or educational attainment.
3. Success is brought about through staying together in our common cause.
2015 Mountain Of Hope Organization Scholarships
On Sunday, May 24th, The Mountain of Hope Organization held its annual community picnic at Graney Park. The weather was great and we enjoyed having over 100 members of the community join us for food, music, fellowship.
In addition to acknowledging our annual scholarship recipients, we also acknowledged Coach Gene Spadaro for his many decades of service to students and athletes at Mount Hope High School.
The highlight of the day was the acknowledgement of our scholarship recipients for the 2015 scholarship cycle. Each recipient received a $1,500 scholarship. The recipients were:
Lindsey Jordan - Plans to attend Marshall University
Jacob Lafferty - Plans to attend West Virginia University

Also receiving his second $1,500 scholarship award was Nicholas Oxendale in his second year at West Virginia Institute of Technology.
