What’s New in PQ?

“Dedicated to maintaining a clean, safe, and vibrant Rancho Peñasquitos for families.” The RPTC mission statement is the driving force behind all of our programs that support PQ community volunteers who share our mission.

Grants – This year our grants are funded at $500 for groups and $300 for individuals. The grants committee meets quarterly to review grant applications and select deserving recipients. The next review is Dec. 3, so if you have a project that will benefit PQ that needs a little funding, please apply today!

Sponsorships – Throughout the year, we sponsor our amazing residents in community service programs such as BLAST, Light the Night, Relay for Life, Battle of the Bands, and others.

Contests – Currently there are two contests for our PQ youth. The Fiesta de los Peñasquitos Art Contest, where fifth graders from PQ public schools submit a drawing that emulates our Fiesta theme. One winner’s art becomes our official Fiesta image. In the fall, students from K-12 reflect on “Growing Up PQ.” This essay contest is in full partnership with 92129 Magazine. This year’s deadline is Nov. 2, so read more in the Community Stuff section of this issue!


Volunteer Awards – We love to recognize the community service of our residents. These annual awards honor one adult, one business, and a student from each of our public schools for their community service efforts in PQ.

These wonderful programs are funded through the Annual Fiesta de los Peñasquitos proceeds and our Community Partnerships program. Please attend a meeting or visit our website to learn more!
