The Benevolent Fund assists members of the Peace Corps community who are overcoming acute hardship, including health issues related to their Peace Corps service, and connects them to resources to help navigate a road to recovery. For far too long, too many members of the Peace Corps community have faced significant challenges following their service and have often felt forgotten and alone in their personal battles to recover. Your gift to the Benevolent Fund supports RPCVs in need of assistance, both financially and through community-led support groups. Your gift to the Benevolent Fund supports RPCVs in need of assistance, both financially and through community-led support groups.
