People Helping People has worked hard to be a valuable resource to the entire community by ensuring that individuals, families and children have access to the services they need to become self-sufficient. Our goal is to ensure the future of each generation and to perpetuate the vision of a better life for our families.

We hope you will join us in this effort to improve the quality of life for the people we serve. Your participation in providing for others will improve the quality of life for everyone living in the Santa Ynez and Los Alamos Valleys and along the Gaviota Coast.

People Helping People is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization that receives funding from a wide range of governmental and private grantors. We are grateful for the support we receive from these sources and are aware that this funding is dependent upon the economy and the current focus of a particular group or administration. As such, this type of support does not ensure PHP a stable funding base or the ability to conduct the kind of long-term planning necessary to the future of the organization.

In order to work toward a stable and productive future for PHP, we ask that you consider one or more of the following ways that you can support the organization. The continued charitable works of PHP are dependent upon the financial and time commitments of community members. Without this help, PHP cannot help.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts

We will send a card to the person you designate to let them know of your memorial gift.

If you would like to make a gift in honor of a friend or family member on a special occasion, please provide us with contact information and we will send a card to the individual letting them know of your tribute gift.

Women’s Independent Giving Society (WIGS)

Established by a group of Founding members, the goal of The Valley WIGS is to empower women who want to make a positive difference in the community. By pooling their resources they can have a greater impact than by giving individually. Rather than incur significant organizational and administrative overhead and legal liabilities, the Founders use People Helping People as an umbrella organization. PHP allows members of WIGS to select from among a wide array of programs that serve the community in the Santa Ynez and Los Alamos Valleys.

A membership is $500 and each membership has one vote in deciding how funds are allocated. Two individuals may choose to share one membership, deciding together how to cast their vote.

Sustaining members contribute $1,000 and are identified with Founders on any WIGS materials. Although larger contributions are encouraged and recognized, no member will have more than one vote.  Although members need make only the annual contribution, every member is encouraged to become more involved by bringing in new members and to consider selecting a volunteer opportunity at PHP.

For 2015 WIGS donated $31,500 and voted at the annual luncheon in April to invest funds in PHP’s Los Alamos Youth Program, S.Y.V. High School Mentoring, Homelessness Prevention, and Services to Seniors.
