SEED FUNDING

If you can’t make it to Geneva this summer, but still want to participate in the projects, please donate for the Project Incubator Trust Account. What good is it to have an incubator if the projects don’t have funding to get off the ground and wage peace? The seed funding goal is $200,000 to adequately support all 20 Peace Projects. To donate, please send the RAGFP a check with “Peace Project Incubator” in the memo line. We will place your donations into a trust account to only be used for the incubator projects.
