Contribute to an Endowment

With an endowment gift you have the opportunity to help support—on a permanent basis—one of several exciting programs at the Hop. Income from an endowment can be used to fund a Hop program in perpetuity. This means the Hop will always be able to count on your gift to provide students and the surrounding communities with events of the highest artistic standards.

Student Workshops

Become a Friend of the Student Workshops

For 60+ years, the Hop Student Workshops have served as a model for experiential arts education on a liberal arts campus, with about a quarter of all students using the studios during their time at Dartmouth.

Purchase Gift Certificates

As the saying goes, the best things in life aren’t things. Some are experiences—like great concerts, plays or films. Hop gift certificates—either electronic or on paper—are an easy way to give people unforgettable arts experiences.
