The Impact of your donation

At a time when governments are decreasing funding for civil society and the richest, most powerful countries are trying to stop us, ICAN relies on committed individuals like you to help us challenge the nuclear-armed states to ban and eliminate these weapons of mass destruction and their catastrophic humanitarian consequences. 

On 22 January, 2021, the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) entered into force, making nuclear weapons illegal under international law. Like the Treaty's adoption in 2017, this milestone was achieved thanks in large parts to the tireless efforts of ICAN campaigners around the world, even in the face of a global pandemic. Before the TPNW, nuclear weapons were the only weapons of mass destruction not banned under international law. Now, with the treaty’s entry into force, we can call nuclear weapons what they are: prohibited weapons of mass destruction, just like chemical weapons and biological weapons.  Together, we made the ban on nuclear weapons a reality. Now, we have to build on this historic achievement by getting more countries on board and by strengthening the stigma around these weapons of mass destruction. And your support helps us do so.Please consider giving whatever you can. 

ICAN’s campaign efforts requires planning, preparation and talented campaigners and activists around the world. Every gift, small and large, has a special and important place in enabling us to make TPNW a reality. ICAN is funded through governments, foundations and individuals.

Other projects made possible by your donation

The Treaty will make nuclear weapons illegal under international law, but broad mobilization and education across different sectors will be necessary to build the new norm that nuclear weapons are unacceptable and lay the groundwork for their elimination.

With $10,000

We can launch a research project that exposes key information about nuclear weapons to the public, like our "Complicit: 2020 Global Nuclear Weapons Spending" report.   

With $20,000

We can run a digital campaign with high-grade materials to coincide with a political opportunity (like an election or a vote) in a target country. 

With $50,000

We can support our partners to implement projects that will get the parliamentary support and opportunities to get their country on board with the Treaty, like our 2020 Entry into Force Funds .
