Calendar Sales Generate Funds for Peace Corps Projects Overseas

Practical gift benefits the field work of Peace Corps Volunteers and brings the world back home.calendar_06

Groups of Returned Peace Corps Volunteers produce and sell calendars yearly; profits go to overseas projects, including those run by current Peace Corps Volunteers in the field.

The most established calendar of its kind is the RPCV International Calendar produced yearly through the Madison, WI, RPCV group. 100 percent of proceeds from calendar sales fund approved projects taking place around the world.

Through the RPCV International Calendar’s group sales initiative, other groups that sell the calendars can also raise funds to support their work. For example, calendars sold through the Friends and RPCVs of Guyana generate revenue for approved projects taking place in Guyana.

Another RPCV group produces and sells its own calendars — see the Peace Corps Panama Friends calendar that supports Peace Corps Panama projects.
