Peace Corps Commemorative Foundation

About PCCF

In January 2014, the United States Congress authorized the Peace Corps Commemorative Foundation to establish a commemorative work on Federal land in Washington, D.C. Peace Corps Commemorative Foundation is the public name of the Peace Corps Foundation, a District of Columbia 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation.

The Design Competition

The Peace Corps Commemorative Foundation (PCCF) is sponsoring a two-stage, national design competition to select an artistically exceptional design concept for a permanent commemorative work in the heart of Washington, DC.

This competition will provide designers from all across the United States an opportunity to create a compelling work of public art that will be bold and inspirational.

The design should focus on and express American ideals and values that are the essence of the Peace Corps and Peace Corps service. It should be about America and our aspirations as a people, and about the Peace Corps as a manifestation of those aspirations.

The Peace Corps Commemorative Foundation (PCCF) is sponsoring a two-stage, national design competition to select an artistically exceptional design concept for a permanent commemorative work in the heart of Washington, DC.

The commemorative work will honor the enduring historic significance of the 1961 establishment of the Peace Corps and the fundamental American ideals and values embodied in Peace Corps and expressed in Peace Corps service.

The commemorative site is a visible triangle of federal parkland located near the U.S. Capitol Building and Capitol Grounds, the National Mall and Washington’s historic Union Station. The National Park Service (NPS) will maintain the commemorative work in perpetuity after construction is completed.

Maps, plans, photographs and analytical diagrams showing the site and site context are available on the competition website: www.PeaceCorpsDesign.net.

  • Thank you all for never forgetting the work, sacrifice, and beauty of Peace Corps service. Good to see Gordon Radley still with the spirit. His brother Lawrence (Colombia 1961-1963) must be proud!
