• General support accounts for a modest proportion of peace and security giving, and experienced a dip in 2016.

    Peace and security funders provided 14 percent of funding in the form of general support, slightly lower than the 16 percent of general support provided by U.S. foundations overall in 2016. Over the five years of data collected for the Peace and Security Index, the proportion of general support funding has ranged from 14–20 percent.
