Donate and Help Build a Safer World

You can make the difference in the race between cooperation and catastrophe.

Every day, NTI works to protect our lives, livelihoods, environment, and quality of life from the risks posed by weapons of mass destruction, now and for future generations. 

We invite you to support our work to secure nuclear materials, generate action on cyber-nuclear threats, prevent dirty bomb incidents, work for sensible global nuclear policies and strengthen global health security.

You can trust NTI to use your gift wisely to make a real difference. Since 2001, we have made tangible impacts in reducing catastrophic threats. Our work has reduced the threat of nuclear trafficking. We have helped build international disease surveillance networks to coordinate pandemic response. We’ve brought unlikely partners – even adversaries – from across governments and industries around the world to build consensus and commitment for progress on WMD issues. 

NTI relies on the generosity of our donors to meet our budget and achieve our mission. Your donations directly impact our ability to boost global security and make the world a safer place.

Your support today means a safer world for future generations. Thank you.
