Make a Difference



HOPE Global Forums are a community of events developed for members of Operation HOPE. Our Forums serve as a call to action: to inspire innovation and thought leadership around an inclusive global economy. Our Annual Meeting gathers some of the most extraordinary people in the world – convening an array of C-Suite leaders and influencers from government, community and the private sector to outline that vision. Our meetings are carefully curated to ensure all stakeholders in our work are represented. All members of Operation HOPE are invited to attend the Annual Meeting.

Operation HOPE

Operation HOPE was founded in 1992 and is now the largest economic education and empowerment organization for underserved communities, families, youth and adults. Through our work, we convert check-cashing customers into banking customers, renters into homeowners, small business dreamers into small business owners, and minimum wage workers into living wage workers.

Operation HOPE is rated four-stars by Charity Navigator for transparency and accountability, its highest rating available. To date, HOPE has served more than 2 million individuals; directed more than $1.5 billion in private capital to America’s low-wealth communities; utilized over 20,000 HOPE Corps volunteers, and currently serves more than 300 cities in the U.S. and around the world. We measure our impact through the Gallup-HOPE Index, a historic 100-year partnership with Gallup.

The Impact

The Annual Meeting serves as a staging area for commitments to the HOPE Impact Network. Since 2013, over 1,700 commitments have been gathered for new and existing economic empowerment programs and services, volunteerism and mentorship. In 2014, these commitments allowed Operation HOPE to serve over 115,000 youth and adults around the world.

Your membership enables Operation HOPE to continue its work as the first ever nonprofit, financial services network for poor and underserved communities. Through this network we are:

  • Nurturing and developing the next generation of entrepreneurs
  • Creating jobs through small business development
  • Delivering on the dream of homeownership
  • Empowering our women and girls
