      Jim, any contributions go to the National Peace Corps Association and not directly to Peace Corps. NPCA advocates for Peace Corps and works to ensure that Congress continues to fund Peace Corps, which makes up the vast majority of Peace Corps funding. Peace Corps can’t go an lobby on their behave, but NPCA works to coordinate advocacy efforts where volunteers lobby their congresspeople. NPCA has two full-time staff people that work on Peace Corps advocacy in Congress. However, if you want to learn about donating to Peace Corps projects or issues, check out https://www.peacecorps.gov/donate/.
