Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International organizations and individuals for activities to reduce and eliminate the threat of nuclear weapons. Grants are intended to prevent new nuclear countries from developing, build regional security and peace in South Asia, and promote the elimination of nuclear weapons.

The Fund gives grants that:

  • Promote the Reduction and Eventual Elimination of Nuclear Weapons. The Fund is building the common understanding among world leaders that nuclear weapons are unacceptable. Ploughshares Fund help leaders take concrete steps to reduce current arsenals and limit future ones, all to achieve a planet where nuclear weapons can never be used again.
  • Prevent the Emergence of New Nuclear States. Iran and North Korea have been the biggest threats to containing nuclear weapons. The lasting solution will not be a military one. Diplomacy and engagement—always grounded in data and strategic analysis—can solve these problems. It takes hard work and intelligence, both of which require funding.
  • Build Regional Peace and Security. Longstanding and unresolved tensions between nuclear-armed India and Pakistan make South Asia one of the most dangerous places on earth. The Fund's partners work to transform the region with fact-finding missions, on-the-ground analysis, high-level dialogue, confidence-building measures, and more.
