You don’t have to be a Peace and Security funder to fund “peace and security” work. In fact, increasingly foundations are understanding just how critical the existence of peaceful and stable societies is to the success of other areas of work, including education, gender equality, and climate change.
For this reason, the International Grantmakers Network is pleased to be hosting Alexandra Toma, Executive Director of the Peace and Security Funders Group, for a brown bag lunch (bring your own lunch!) to discuss the findings of the 2017 Peace and Security Funding Index. The Index is a first-of-its-kind research project that showcases the foundations dedicated to building a safer, more peaceful and prosperous global future. The Index identifies who “peace and security” funders are, what issues they fund (e.g., peacebuilding, 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). The Index found that in 2014, 290 foundations made 2,773 grants totaling $357.1 million for peace and security work.
