People to People on the I-net

Projects inspired by the ended People to People program


In 1960 Mr. Samuel Montague informs the president that he (Mr. Montague) is organizing a Greater Kansas City People to People Council with financial backing from Mr. Joyce C. Hall.

1961: Greater Kansas City People to People Council, Incorporated Missouri, co.no: N00002979, active (non-profit)

In 1961 Joyce Hall establishes People to People International (charter no: N00003473). She had previously founded Hallmark Cards Inc. The head office for People to People International was placed in Kansas City, Missouri. Joyce Hall had been one of the people at the conference held by Eisenhower in 1956. His responsibility was to organize a committee of one hundred or more American leaders who would be the governing group of the People to People Council. Mr. Hall also provides the seed money for the Council and ends up being its CEO.

  •  1961: People-to-People, Incorporated Missouri, charter no: N00003473, active, (non-profit). These are GKC People to People.
  • 1961: People to People International, Incorporated Missouri, co.no: N00003473 – (non-profit)
  • 1969: People to People Foundation, Incorporated California, co.no: C0568797, suspended
  • We then have a lot of People to People companies that are registered and suspended in Missouri.
  • 1996: People to People International, Incorporated New York, co.no: 2093070, (non-profit)
  • –   There are several People to People non-profits that were started in the late 1960’s. The 1996 New York company is the only non-profit I find that is still active. It cites its head-office as being in Missouri. I think they are referring to the 1961 company.


  • 1964: Ambassadors International, Incorporated Florida, co.no: 707911, Inactive (non-profit). As you see they start off as a non-profit. Then the name is claimed in 1995.
