How you can give back to PEP
PEP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and is happy to offer most of our services at no cost to our participants. We rely on fundraising efforts and donations from the community to keep our services running.
Make a Financial Contribution
By offering most of our services at no cost to our participants, it is our duty to raise the funds necessary to keep the organization running. We do not partner with outside vendors or solicit products, so the environment for our parents is free of judgement and commercial pressure. If you would like to make a tax-deductible financial contribution, you can do so in one of the following ways:
Check or Money Order – please make your check or money order donations payable to PEP and mail to the following address:
ATTN: PEP – Santa Barbara
PO Box 261
Santa Barbara, CA 93116
Spread the Word
If you know someone who is expecting a baby, or just welcomed one to their family, encourage them to participate in PEP. Our outreach is most successful through positive recommendations!
Become a Volunteer
PEP is staffed by trained volunteers who are the best experts of parenting: they are parents themselves! If your PEP experience was positive and you want to continue growing with the organization, or if your workload has shifted since having a baby, or if you are passionate about helping local families, we encourage you to become a volunteer. Our 12-hour training session is conveniently split between four sessions, and covers all of the services that PEP provides. If your passion is public speaking, or if you’re better behind the scenes, we’d love to utilize your talents.
