    About

    From the ongoing conflicts in Iraq, Syria, and South Sudan to the horrors committed by ISIL, we live in a world that is seemingly rife with violence and instability. What we don’t see, read, or hear often enough is another truth: today’s world is also filled with incredible stories of resilience and trends of peace and security that arc toward a more peaceful and stable world.

    The Peace & Security Funding Index: An Analysis of Global Foundation Grantmaking is a first-of-its-kind research project that showcases the foundations and philanthropists dedicated to building a safer, more peaceful and prosperous global future. These funders are investing in efforts to prevent, mitigate, and resolve conflict and to rebuild after conflict. From research on stopping nuclear terrorism to citizen journalism in Egypt, peace and security funders are supporting peace, justice, diplomacy, and dialogue in a variety of ways. In 2013, 288 foundations supported over 1,200 organizations with more than $283 million spread across nearly 2,000 grants.

    The Peace and Security Funders Group (PSFG) and Foundation Center created the Index to help funders, policymakers, and the general public better understand the peace and security funding landscape. The Index identifies who “peace and security” funders are, what issues they fund (e.g., cybersecurity, preventing genocide and atrocities, climate security), where they focus (i.e., specific regions or countries), and how they make an impact (e.g., through public education efforts, journalism, research).

    We hope that our analysis will allow funders to identify new partners and areas of opportunity. The examples from PSFG members highlighted in this website will showcase opportunities where investments of various sizes have made a real, lasting, and positive difference in the lives of people and communities around the world.

    Finally, our hope is that this first annual Peace & Security Funding Index will serve as the primary source for funders, nonprofits, policymakers, and the general public to learn more about the peace and security sector, and how we can all help to build a better future.
