The Peace and Security Funders Group is a network of public, private and family foundations, and individual philanthropists who make grants or expenditures that contribute to peace and global security. We maintain an informed, engaged and collegial community of funders, whose numbers and investments in the field are steadily increasing. 


Peace & Security Funding Index 

In April 2017, PSFG and Foundation Center launched the second edition of the Peace and Security Funding Index and released a report on the Index’s key findings. In 2014, 290 foundations supported over 1,800 organizations with more than $357 million spread across nearly 2,800 grants. Our research found that peace and security funders are making important contributions to global peace and stability, despite making up less than 1% of total foundation giving. To learn more, visit
