Situation

The IPF is trying to prevent war and heal the wounds of war, using peaceful interventions designed by local people. It covers local peacebuilding in communities before (preventative), during (mediation) or after (reconciliation) violent conflict. Local, nonviolent interventions have a better success rate than military solutions and those imposed from the outside.

Solution

Continuing 10 years of successful grantmaking, this project will make one-year grants to local, realistic peacebuilding proposals around the world. It won’t end war, but will calm the flames and repair the harm locally. It will give recipients skills in conflict resolution and access to our global network of peace practitioners. Our funding has unlocked other grants and shown confidence in often very grassroots movements, making other funders feel able to contribute after our funding ends.
