Sierra Service Project is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization incorporated in the State of California. Participant fees cover 54% of SSP’s operating costs; the remaining balance comes from donations from individuals, churches, businesses and foundations. Without these donations, we would have to raise our fees by at least $300. Over 600 individuals and families give annually.
Scholarships are an important part of SSP’s mission, allowing more youth the opportunity to serve. In 2018, SSP awarded a total of $47,000 in scholarships to 20% of our participants. These are young people who would not have been able to have the wonderful SSP experience without this financial assistance.
SSP’s tax identification number (EIN) is 68-0222320. We believe in financial transparency; information about us can be found on the independent informational service GuideStar. Download SSP’s 2017 Form 990.
