The Future Peace Corps Foundation
The Peace Corps community has no shortage of ideas and initiatives that aim to contribute to the greater good. Presently, a few of these initiatives find modest support through NPCA’s Community Fund. By expanding our base of financial support through the Combined Campaign, we can convert the under-powered Community Fund into a full-fledged grant-making vehicle that can catalyze many more worthy initiatives. The Peace Corps Foundation will have the capacity to solicit millions in private sector support from corporations, foundations, and governments as well as individuals to address the broader needs for Peace Corps community impact.
The Future Peace Corps Foundation will act as a vital catalyst to turn our community’s ideas into reality by:
Providing critical grants to Peace Corps Volunteers for projects undertaken during service
Funding domestic and overseas initiatives led by individual RPCVs or affiliate groups
Raising money for Peace Corps programs not funded by Congressional appropriations
Supporting the work of National Peace Corps Association, which enables all the above.
