• General support accounts for a modest proportion of peace and security giving.

    Peace and security funders provided 14 percent of funding in the form of general support, notably lower than the 20 percent of general support provided by U.S. foundations overall in 2017. Over the six years of data collected for the Peace and Security Index, the proportion of general support funding has ranged from 14–20 percent.
