Ploughshares Fund Offers Support for Projects to Prevent Spread of Weapons

The Ploughshares Fund (www.ploughshares.org), a public grantmaking foundation, makes grants to support initiatives aimed at preventing the spread and use of nuclear, biological, and chemical weapons and other weapons of war, and to prevent conflicts that could lead to the use of weapons of mass destruction. The fund invests in a wide range of innovative and practical programs, from scientific research, to media, to behind-the-scenes dialogue, to grassroots organizing and even lobbying. Ploughshares supports both organizations and individuals working to stop the spread of weapons and build regional security. The fund can make grants for direct lobbying programs, and there are no geographical restrictions on grants. Requests for two-year grants will be considered. The fund does not finance the production of films, video-tapes, or books. It also does not fund the research and writing of academic dissertations. Visit the Ploughshares Web site for complete grant program guidelines and information on funded projects. Deadlines for applications are February 15 and July 15, 2006.
