In 1983, returned Peace Corps Volunteers and staff created the Foundation as a way for former Volunteers and staff to stay connected to the Philippines and to each other in a worthy cause. We are the official Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV) group for the Philippines.


Through a competitive scholarship program, the Foundation provides educational opportunities for bright, young Filipinos who indicate a willingness to contribute to the development of their country, but lack the financial resources to pursue a university degree.

Please join us in managing the Foundation and providing educational opportunities for the leaders of tomorrow in the Philippines! The Foundation can always use a few extra hands in a variety of areas.

In their words

Without PCAFPD support, my destiny could not have been what I wanted. With diligence and a heart of gratitude towards the Foundation, I graduated with honors.
