The Ploughshares Fund is the largest foundation singularly focused on reducing the threat of nuclear weapons.
To that end, the fund invites applications from organizations and individuals working to build a safe, secure, nuclear weapons-free world. Grants will be awarded to individuals and organizations to support efforts to promote the reduction and eventual elimination of nuclear weapons, prevent the emergence of new nuclear states, and build regional peace and security.
The fund places few restrictions on grantmaking does not impose geographical limitations on its awards and can fund direct lobbying programs; it makes grants to individuals. The fund encourages women and people from diverse communities to apply.
Applications for the winter 2022 cycle will be accepted between November 14, 2022, and December 14, 2022. The foundation asks applicants planning to apply during the winter cycle to register their portal account as soon as possible.
