Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
Ploughshares Fund’s purpose is to help achieve a safe, secure, world free from the threat of nuclear weapons. A renewal of general operating support will enable Ploughshares Fund to continue successful efforts to reduce the U.S. nuclear weapons budget and prevent the spread of nuclear weapons by promoting a diplomatic solution to the impasse with Iran; pursue deeper civil society involvement with nuclear issues in South Asia; and add new staff for a major drive to gain funding from new donors for the organization and the broader field.
for promoting innovation in the nuclear security field  
A supplemental project grant to Ploughshares Fund for the Nuclear Innovation Collaborative will give the new venture added resources for its initial investments. The Hewlett Foundation was an original member of the consortium of donors that conceived and created the Nuclear Innovation Collaborative—based on a shared assessment that significant revitalization of the nuclear security field is needed to achieve progress on these issues. With the project now going into operation, the grantee can use this grant to start functioning as a source of nuclear security venture capital, bringing new ideas and new actors into the nuclear security field.
