Why SSP Depends Upon Your Support
SSP is offering various new programs at no cost to participants in 2021 including:
- ZZP with SSP: monthly gathering created by youth, for youth
- Leadership Academy: development cohort for staff alumni
- Youth Advisory Council
- Community Advisory Council
Donations cover the costs of developing and running free programs, and provide substantial funds to underwrite the costs of all other programs that have a nominal participation fee.
In 2019 donations provided 35% of SSP’s operating budget, and grew to an impressive 85% in 2020 during the beginning of the pandemic when SSP faced a significant financial challenge. This year we are planning for a budget where donations provide 70% of SSP’s operating funds. Every year the SSP donor community grows their financial support for our mission. We are deeply thankful for the 400+ donors who give annually to SSP – we literally could not run impactful programs without the generosity of donors.
70% of our 2021 operating budget is from donations:
- Donations from board members: $40,000
- 12xSSP monthly donors: $65,000
- Other individual donations: $136,000
- Foundation grants: $225,000
- Employer matching donations: $10,000
- Church donations: $10,000
