Who are we?

The Penny Project is a unique organization.  What makes us unique?

  • We strive to help children reach their dreams and goals.

  • We distribute goods, food, donations and financial contributions to children and families in need.

  • Our goal is to able to provide help with educational scholarships as well as limited sports financial aid. 

  • Our goal is to never turn any person or family in need away. 

  • We are dedicated to provide dignity, stability and opportunities to our clients.  

When we founded The Penny Project Our sole focus was to help children be successful and to help be part of changing their life path for the better.  However during our growth and expansion we have learned that not only are our children failing but so is the communities around them. So we have tirelessly worked during this public health crisis to focus on the realities of our communities. We will work with the community to help us fill the needs of those children and families. We are promoting initiatives to serve the people who need them most. We believe in taking action with urgency in order to raise public awareness and invoke real action. Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of our children.



We service our local communities by distributing goods, tools for education, clothing, hygiene, food and resources etc. using donated supplies and resources from our benefactors and partners to partnering non-profits, schools, directly to youth etc.
We will partner with other local non-profits schools and other entities and work to help where we can with our resources.  We intend to open a small center where we can offer basic life skills,  classes (i.e. how to balance a check book change a tire etc.). We also want to offer workshops to help keep some of our youth out of trouble by redirecting their energy into constructive activities (i.e. music, poetry, pottery, cooking etc).

We believe in having fun while helping out. So we will be hosting several fund raising events that includes lots of fun activities, food and games. We will soon have an event calendar where you can sign up to help, but for now contact us at thepennyprojectslc@gmail.com

Collecting Donations

At The Penny Project, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing this issue. Raising funds or collecting donations is by no means an easy feat, but through cooperation and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
