The Holland/Zeeland Promise began in 2010 as a dream to allow our area’s young people to graduate college or technical school without crushing student debt. Since its inception, the Promise has been housed at the Community Foundation of the Holland/Zeeland Area where it has received administrative support.
CFHZ is proud to be a part of the Promise’s story and contribute toward its future growth with a $120,000 grant over four years.
Promise candidates are nominated by their high school or Careerline Tech Center guidance counselors or staff at Hope College’s Upward Bound, the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Holland or Latin Americans United for Progress. Selection is based on a range of factors including high financial need, the motivation to achieve a college or technical degree and proven academic success. Most Promise recipients are the first in their families to go to college.
