PCIA prepares an annual report as a record of the Association’s activities. PCIA's fiscal year runs July 1 - June 30. Reasons for preparing an annual report include:
- Official archives. The annual report serves as documentation of PCIA’s activities and achievements over the years. We are proud of PCIA’s accomplishments and seek to preserve them as a permanent record of our service.
- Good nonprofit management. Our annual report informs members and the public about our successes and our impact, as well as the challenges we face as we seek to fulfill our mission statement. PCIA is a 501-c-3 nonprofit registered with the IRS and our tax ID number is 45-4989757.
- When we apply for grants from foundations or seek corporate support, we will be asked for information about PCIA. The annual report provides that information quickly.
- Annual reaffiliation with NPCA. PCIA is affiliated with National Peace Corps Association, which supports the more than 230,000 who have served in the Peace Corps. NPCA is currently making a special effort to assist the 7,000 volunteers who were evacuated due to the covid-19 pandemic. In addition, NPCA assists its affiliate groups with information and resources.
- Keep our members informed. The annual report provides information that is not accessible through our other communication pieces, including three newsletters, social media outlets, and website.
