There are so many more ways to support NPCA's mission of championing lifelong commitment to Peace Corps ideals and achieving our three goals of helping Peace Corps to be the best it can be, empowering members and affiliate groups to thrive, and amplifying our community's development impact. Here's a list here...but if you think of others, please let us know!
If your employer makes matching gifts, this is an excellent opportunity to increase the size of your contribution, usually by 50% or more. Some corporations even match gifts after retirement for certain employees. Check with your employer to learn more.
Combined Federal Campaign
The Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the official workplace giving campaign of the Federal government. The mission of the CFC is to promote and support philanthropy through a program that is employee focused, cost-efficient, and effective in providing Federal employees the opportunity to improve the quality of life for all. Choose NPCA as the charity you’d like to benefit (CFC 11708) and set up your automatic payroll deductions.
Legacy of Peace Bequests
NPCA offers an opportunity for you to leave a legacy of peace by naming NPCA as a beneficiary in your will, life insurance policy, or IRA. This is an opportunity for you to support the values and actions of the Peace Corps well beyond your lifetime. In addition there can be significant tax advantages to making a gift to NPCA from your estate.
You may choose to bequeath to NPCA a specific amount or all of your estate. The following suggestions are guidelines and should be written or adapted by your legal counsel to fit your individual situation:
- Sample Bequest of Specific Amount
“I give, devise, and bequeath $_____ to the National Peace Corps Association, TAX I.D. #58-1431113. NPCA may be contacted at: 1900 L Street NW, Suite 610, Washington, DC 20036; phone: 202-293-7728”
- Sample Bequest of Remainder of Estate
“I give, devise, and bequeath to the National Peace Corps Association, TAX I.D. #58-1431113, all [or state the fraction or percentage] of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal. NPCA may be contacted at: 1900 L Street NW, Suite 610, Washington, DC 20036; phone: 202-293-7728”
We recognize that writing a will and designating beneficiaries are very personal matters. If you choose to make a bequest to NPCA, we encourage you to let us know so that we may have the opportunity to express our appreciation.

Stock & IRA Gifts
On December 18, 2015, President Obama signed legislation passed by Congress which permanently authorizes the Charitable IRA Rollover retroactive to January 1, 2015.
Donors age seventy and a half years or older and older may transfer up to $100,000 from their IRA to a qualified public charity, such as NPCA. The transfer will be made free of federal income tax – and in some cases state income tax – while still meeting the donor’s required minimum distribution (RMD). The person wishing to make the rollover contribution must go through the IRA custodian who is administering the IRA. Most IRA custodians have forms on their websites that will permit the distribution to be made to the charity. Click here to download more information.
