About Us

Ploughshares Fund is a global security foundation working to build a safe, secure world by developing and investing in initiatives to reduce and ultimately eliminate the world's nuclear stockpiles and to promote stability in regions of conflict where nuclear weapons exist. 

How do we do it? With your help. For more than thirty five years, people like you—teachers, scientists, parents, and countless others—have helped provide more than $100 million to support the smartest people with the best ideas on global security.

Our approach to reducing nuclear weapons and other global security threats is unique and effective. We: 

  • Identify and fund astute strategies for creating a more secure world.
  • Amplify funding with our own issue expertise, advocacy, relationship building and media savvy.
  • Fund quickly: our discretionary grants pay for last minute opportunities that escape others’ processes.
