You have three ways to support us and our work:
1) Became a member of our parent organization the National Peace Corps Association.
Designate “Friends of Ecuador” as your preferred affiliate. $10 of your membership fee comes directly to us.
2) Donate to us directly
Friends of Ecuador is a 501c3 registered charity. Your donations to our organization are tax-deductible. We are an all-volunteer led organization with minimal expenses, but some of them include the costs of hosting this webpage. All of your donations go back into making sure this organization can continue to serve the RPCV community and link volunteers to RPCVs.
3) Support volunteer projects through Peace Corps Partnerships and search for “Ecuador”
Volunteers in Ecuador periodically have projects that need some modest funding to get off the ground. We will feature them on our webpage periodically or follow the link on this page and see who needs a little bit of help!
4) Special support for Conciencia Amazónica
An RPCV initiative based in the southeast Ecuadorian Amazon, focused on environmental education, youth empowerment, combining art, dance, and science to promote the Jungle as a living laboratory for locals and international visitors alike. Click on the drop-down menu to specify your donation.
