Thank you for being part of the
Project Helping community and
helping us grow to impact more
lives than ever in 2021.

Volunteering improves mental wellness.

Project Helping makes it ridiculously easy accessible fun inclusive impactful to volunteer.


Year In Review

Our world has changed dramatically over the past two years. COVID has overtaken our daily lives and forced us to adapt and change how we interact with the world. While impacting the physical health of so many, it has also created a mental health pandemic as everyone has been forced to alter how we find our sense of connection and purpose.

Project Helping's mission is to provide that very sense of connection and purpose vital to our mental well-being. It has never been more challenging to execute our mission in our ten years. Yet, despite the vast and unique challenge, our team continued to provide innovative and valuable mental health resources for our community.

Volunteering provides a deep sense of purpose and connection. Our focus has always been to make volunteering ridiculously accessible so everyone can benefit from the mental health benefits of serving others. Over the past two years, we have reshaped our organization to capitalize on two delivery mechanisms for our mission.

Our in-person programs team has grown and innovated at every step, providing almost 400 community-based volunteer experiences in 2021. This allowed over 2000 people to improve their mental wellness. In addition to the Denver Metro area, we successfully launched in Phoenix and saw substantial growth in our San Diego market. In 2022, we expect to launch in New York and San Francisco!

With so many working remotely and staying home, we exponentially grew our Kynd Kit program to deliver volunteer projects via mail anywhere in the world. As a result, our team shipped over 80,000 volunteer projects to every state in the U.S. and over 40 different countries. In addition, we hosted over 300 virtual Kynd Kit builds to bring people together worldwide.

Collectively, almost 70,000 people participated in Project Helping programming. Those 70,000 people improved their mental wellness while impacting nearly half a million people with their volunteer efforts.

None of this impact is possible without the generous support of our donors, corporate partners, and foundations. Collectively, that support, the leadership of our board, and the tireless work of our team have yielded unprecedented impact. On behalf of our board, our team, and myself, I extend our deepest gratitude. We could not do any of this work without our entire community. Here's to continued growth and impact in 2022.
