The Fellowship of Reconciliation’s (FoR) International Peacemakers’ Fund (IPF) was created to provide financial support to international communities: experiencing violent conflict; in a process of recovery after the cessation of violent conflict; in which violent conflict is likely to start. Priority is given to projects in keeping with the aims and values of FoR. Projects must therefore be committed to organizing for nonviolent social change, and utilise the methodology and principles of active nonviolence, conflict transformation, and systemic peacebuilding to work for justice and reconciliation.

  • Project Beneficiaries: Applicants must clearly demonstrate who the beneficiaries of the project are, in terms of geographical location; age; gender; economic circumstances, etc.; and a plan to publicise and market the project in the selected community. Applicants must be clear about: who will benefit from the project; how will the project seek the participation of the community; which members of the community will benefit; how will participants be selected?
