Partners For Peace (P4P)


Building strong families for a peaceful community.

The Big Idea

Partners for Peace delivers a continuum of family education programs to help build stronger families and a more peaceful community. This nonprofit’s Big Idea supports its core purpose: to offer culturally relevant family education for parents, caregivers and youth. Described as “that instruction manual that (parents) so desperately needed,” Partners for Peace shares tools to promote nutritious eating, school success and healthy social media habits. By supporting their Big Idea, you will help sustain these virtual and in-person classes in 2022.

“I took the classes to change myself, not to change my children. I have learned to listen to my kids and really pay attention to what they want to say and to understand their needs. Before Partners for Peace, I was lost and not the person I wanted to be. Now, I feel confident in how I parent my children and I can see a positive difference in them, which makes me very happy." Karla Jimenez, 35 Soledad, 4 children

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $7.8 million for 162 local nonprofits in 2020.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $35 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 7,578 donors. We did it, together.

The 2021 Campaign begins November 11.
