Friends of Colombia has launched its 2018 Funding Campaign. It is with your generous support that we are able to continue to support our educational projects and entertain new ones. Your gift assists PCV projects in the field, the Magdalena Foundation scholarship program, Paso a Paso, the Marina Orth Foundation, our annual contribution to American University for the Colombia Peace Corps Archive, and all the events and special programs FOC supports. Please help us with your donation to Friends of Colombia, P.O. Box 15292, Chevy Chase, MD 20825 or donate online here.  

Friends of Colombia has joined Amazon Smile! For every purchase you make on Amazon, the Amazon Smile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price to Friends of Colombia. That doesn’t sound like a lot, but it definitely adds up! In order to make an effortless contribution, go to — it looks the same as the regular Amazon website, but the logo is slightly different. Then, select the “Friends of Colombia Corporation” as your charity. Thank you for supporting FOC and happy shopping!
