The Colombe Foundation states on its website that it "seeks to create a peaceful world through changes in American policy. We work for the elimination of weapons of mass destruction, a shift from war and aggression to conflict prevention and conflict resolution, and a shift from wasteful military spending to investments in programs addressing poverty, environmental degradation and other root causes of violence. We believe that American citizens, working through non-governmental organizations, can bring about these changes by using the tools of our democracy." [1]

The Foundation currently makes grants to organizations in the United States that it states that share its mission and use these strategies:

  • Grassroots organizations working to educate the public and influence decision makers;
  • Peace advocacy organizations promoting alternative policies;
  • Organizations initiating media coverage. [2]
