Imagine No Hunger
Westminster Presbyterian Church is committed to fighting hunger wherever it exists – locally, in the US, and internationally. Initiated in 2009, the project provides funds to non-profit organizations helping individuals, families and communities facing hunger challenges. Half of the program proceeds supports causes within the Santa Fe area and contiguous US; the other half supports hunger-related projects outside the US. Westminster Presbyterian, through its Imagine No Hunger initiative, has been recognized by the Presbyterian Hunger Program as a Hunger Action Congregation. Your donations will directly support our non-profit partners operating on the front lines to end hunger.
Santa Fe Need and Deed

Provides a variety of assistance to homeless adults in Santa Fe. Volunteers help to provide clothing, food, hygiene and other materials, as well as counseling, mentoring and resource guides. WPC supports Need and Deed by providing a venue for its weekly meetings and serving a hot meal to its participants.
Missio Dei/Deacon's Emergency Fund
Westminster Presbyterian Church has created a fund to provide immediate financial support to local Santa Fe organizations assisting those facing unanticipated expenses due to issues related to immigration. This fund provides emergency support more quickly than current structures in place. Each use of the emergency fund is based on established criteria and would be for a one-time need or on a short-term basis of not more than 60 days. Your donations will be the sole source of funds for this special project, which seeks to be more responsive and flexible in meeting the acute needs of our immigrant community.
