Purpose and Activities

The foundation supports organizations that are: 1) working for the elimination of weapons of mass destruction; 2) advocating for foreign policy that is balanced with diplomacy and prevention rather than dominated by war and aggression; and 3) supporting a shift from wasteful military spending to investments in programs that create real national security, grounded in environmental protection, alternative energy, education and human services. The foundation's current grantmaking priorities are: 1) changing U.S. policy with regards to nuclear weapons disarmament and non-proliferation and complex transformation; 2) shifting the priorities of the military budget; and 3) ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. .
