Columbia River Peace Corps Association awards six grants year. I attended their business meeting last night to request support for additional equipment the La Pedrera computer lab. At the end of their meeting, CRPCA generously agreed to awarded $400 grant to La Pedrera School Project.
Their organization considers grants for projects that meet the following criteria:
- Projects from sponsors who have a connection to Oregon or southwest Washington
- Projects similar to those experienced in the Peace Corps
- Projects that are education-based
- Projects that are objective-based and have measurable results
- Projects that are sustainable
- Projects that benefit women and children
- Projects that empower the recipients
- Projects that improve people’s lives
- Projects that meet a community need
We are grateful for their generous support and the terrific work they do in our community. More about Columbia River Peace Corps Association.
