The Next Hope conference itself is a community project. We only get out of it what we collectively put into it. The registration fee you pay to get in covers the basic costs like renting the space and the chairs, printing programs, and supplying electricity. Beyond that, everything else has to be loaned or donated.

This page lists things that we need to pull off the event, and things that are on the wishlists from project organizers.

If you can donate or loan some of the supplies and equipment listed here, or have anything else to contribute, please contact
