Community Fund - Projects in the Field

Donate Now

If you are interested in increasing the Peace Corps Community's global development impact, but don't see a specific project you want to support- look no further! By donating to the Community Fund - Projects in the Field campaign, this allows NPCA to identify projects most in need and direct funds where we can make the most impact.  Funds from this campaign may go toward supporting any of the following initiatives: 

  • Evacuated Returned Peace Corps Volunteers to complete the unfinished projects that they had to leave behind due to the 2020 global COVID-19 evacuation of PCVs
  • Returned Peace Corps Volunteers returning to their communities to conduct projects in continuation of their service or in partnership with their affiliate groups
  • Funding for WASH projects through the NPCA-Water Charity partnership
  • Funding for affiliate groups working on development projects
