We encourage you to consider monthly giving. Monthly giving supports rapid response grants that fund our most innovative work.

Ploughshares Fund is a global peace and security foundation that believes everyone has the right to a safe and secure future. Every day we work to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons, to stop their spread and to build peace in regions of conflict where nuclear weapons exist.

The Ploughshares Fund Women's Initiative seeks to develop new security paradigms that include more diverse, feminist and inclusive perspectives. We firmly believe that the nuclear policy field must correct its longstanding gender imbalance and systematic exclusion of ideas, people and organizations that diverge from the conventional. Our goal is to create more just, inclusive and peace-oriented national security and foreign policies.

It is up to all of us to solve the world's biggest problem.

Together we can work to avoid nuclear war while we rid the world of nuclear weapons.

Ploughshares Fund is the largest US philanthropic organization focused exclusively on nuclear security. Learn more at ploughshares.org. We support the smartest people with the best ideas for building a safer world. Ploughshares Fund’s unique approach to grantmaking—crafted, tested and refined over the past 36 years—has delivered the best returns for peace and security time and again:

  • • We act as the hub of a diverse network of thought leaders, innovators and campaigners, facilitating advocacy and media efforts to maximize the collective impact of our grantees’ work on nuclear threats.
  • • Our own specialized team of media savvy experts and advocates brings widespread attention to the issues that matter to us and to our grantees influencing the national narrative on nuclear policy.
  • • We take calculated risks, providing seed funding to explore uncharted strategies for reducing nuclear threats. This enables untapped innovative ideas and initiatives to take root, grow and thrive.
