The Fondo Quisqueya Foundation ("Fondo Q'" or "FQ"), is a small (501(c) (3) non-profit that provides low income Dominicans in the Dominican Republic ("DR") with scholarships and grants for educational and training purposes designed to assist them in bettering their lives and to help them attain personal development, skills, and advancement.
Formed in 1987 by ex-Peace Corps Volunteers ("PCVs") and staff who served in the DR, Fondo Q is supported by ex-PCVs and staff, and other friends of the DR, through donations and in-kind support. FQ has no paid staff.
