NPCA Board-approved Policies
Ethical Investment Policy (approved March 2017)
National Peace Corps Association (NPCA) maintains the highest ethical standards as an organization, including a strong commitment to socially responsible investing. NPCA supports the use of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria to guide investment decisions. The use of these criteria is intended to align NPCA investments in companies whose business is consistent with the values and standards of the Peace Corps community. To this end, a fund serving the NPCA should avoid investing in companies that engage in activities with negative social outcomes. In accordance with the application of ESG criteria, NPCA will exclude investments with companies whose principal business is:
- the exploitation, manufacture or sale of fossil fuel products
- the manufacture or sale of tobacco products
- private prisons and judicial detention centers
NPCA will bring the current investment portfolio into compliance with this policy as soon as possible, and no later than one year from the establishment of this policy (i.e., by March 31, 2018).
NPCA's Code of Ethics and Conduct require directors, committee members, staff, interns, fellows and volunteers to report any member's actions that do not comply with the organization's high standards of business and personal ethics of conduct.
This policy sets the standards on how documents and NPCA's records are handled, retained, and destroyed.
Ebola Relief Fund
National Peace Corps Association responded quickly in 2014 when their affiliate groups said they wanted to seek community-based solutions to a rapidly escalating spread of the Ebola virus in West Africa. Chaired by Russell Morgan, Dr.P.H. (RPCV Kenya 1966-69) and comprised of representatives from Friends of Guinea, Friends of Liberia and Friends of Sierra Leone, the Ebola Relief Fund Steering Committee developed a unique technical assistance model to support communities in the affected countries. Over the next 14 months, at least 40 individuals and 17 affiliate groups of the wider Peace Corps community would donate $90,963 that would fund 30 grants to 26 communities that impacted an estimated 300,000 individuals. Thank you to our donors and to the Steering Committee. Read more about the formation and impact of the Ebola Relief Fund, final financials and donor list in the final report.
