• Peace and security funders are making important contributions to global peace and stability, despite only making up less than 1 percent of total foundation giving.

    Peace and security funders do a lot with a little: with only $328 million dedicated to peace and security issues (a fraction of the roughly $2.8 billion foundations provided in 2016 focused on human rights), these funders are contributing to big changes. We’ve again captured some of these stories in the Spotlights found on this website and in the report, but these are just a small sampling of the contributions funders and their grantees are making in support of global peace and security.
