About Us: 

Mission/Giving Statement: Colombe Foundation supports organizations working for a shift from wasteful military spending to investments in programs that create real national security grounded in meeting human and environmental needs.  It further supports organizations that advocate for foreign policy that is balanced with diplomacy and prevention rather than dominated by Cold War threats, war and aggression. Colombe Foundation believes that American citizens, working through non-governmental organizations, can bring about these changes using the tools of our democracy.

The Foundation invests in the following strategies and supports organizations in the United States that share its mission and goals: Grassroots organizations working to educate the public and influence decision makers; Peace advocacy organizations promoting alternative policies and educating opinion makers and decision makers; and Organizations initiating and expanding media coverage on its issues. Current grantmaking priorities are: Changing U.S. policy with regards to nuclear weapons disarmamnet and non-porliferation and complex transformation; and Ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. 

Application Instructions: To be considered for funding, organizations that are not current Colombe Foundation grantees must contact Dini Merz either by phone or email to discuss their proposal prior to submitting an application.
