What is PCAFPD?
Through a scholarship program, the Foundation provides educational opportunities for bright, Filipinos who indicate a willingness to contribute to the development of their country, but lack the financial resources to pursue a university degree.
PCAFPD is incorporated as a non-profit organization according to the laws of the District of Columbia and under Sec. 501(c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
The Foundation raises funds through direct contributions from former Peace Corps Volunteers, staff, Filipinos, and friends of the Philippines. A number of Filipino-American individuals or associations choose the Foundation as a way to support students in their home country. PCAFPD does not maintain formal offices in Washington or the Philippines, and care is taken to keep overhead costs low so that donated funds are almost completely devoted to scholarships.
Contributions to PCAFPD are tax deductible and can be made online through Network for Good or by checks sent to P.O Box 100114, Arlington VA 22210.
