West Cascade Peace Corps Association
About Us


The West Cascade Peace Corps Association funds humanitarian programs from throughout the world that support the goals and ideals of the Peace Corps. We are especially interested in supporting the work of Peace Corps volunteers from Oregon. We encourage Oregon volunteers to include their programs in the Peace Corps Partnership framework and then call this to our attention. Our funding comes from membership dues, fundraising activities, donations, and distributions from the Beryl Brinkman Memorial Fund. Below, you will find a listing of the programs that we have funded, as well as photos and fuller descriptions of selected ones.
