Double your Money!
Become a Sponsoring Member of The Peace Alliance
A committed Peacebuilder has stepped up to offer a $5000 matching grant to amplify our new Sponsoring Membership drive! That means your contribution will be doubled, for the first $5000 given. But we have to meet this goal.
Even if you have already given, please consider an additional gift so we can meet this matching grant opportunity.
Why become a Sponsoring Member of Peace Alliance & Student Peace Alliance?
If you believe it’s important to:
- Shift our culture towards peace and nonviolence
- Focus on positive, proactive and healing oriented approaches to conflict
- Support prevention and intervention efforts to interrupt cycles of crime, incarceration, and despair with at-risk youth
- Create a U.S. Department of Peacebuilding to provide a voice for peace at the highest levels of government
- Infuse smart peacebuilding approaches into U.S. foreign policy
- Advocate for innovative peace practices, such as: Restorative Justice; Conflict Resolution Education and peace curriculum in our schools, etc.
- Expand your ability to organize and speak out to your legislators.
Taking this step of becoming a Sponsoring Member raises your level of commitment to our collective work and mission to build a culture of peace — and will help us fulfill our goal to build a million+ strong person movement for pro-active peacebuidling.
You can join us with as little as $5 per month, or a one-time $45 donation (or more!).
These fun incentives were generously offered by some of our supporters to everyone who joins us as a sponsoring member in the first six weeks of the drive.* All of our current monthly and quarterly donors, our Peace Partners, whom we now consider sponsoring members, will automatically be included in all the incentives below.
EVERY NEW MEMBER RECEIVES:
|Tele-course: Working for Change Without Recreating the Past
With Miki Kashtan
Every new member will have the opportunity to attend a powerful two-part tele-course focusing on principles of Nonviolent Communication, led by the skillful and inspiring Miki Kashtan of BayNVC. The course is entitled: Working for Change Without Recreating the Past, likely to take place in September. In this mini-series, we will explore: working with a focus on what we want to create; developing and living new models of power and leadership; transforming judgments into ways of engaging across differences with love and respect. Learn more about this course.
“Summer of Peace” Media Library – FREE UPGRADE
The Summer of Peace 2013 Virtual Summit and the 2012 media library are the most comprehensive audio library of peacebuilding resources ever assembled–and as a new Peace Alliance sponsoring member, you will receive a FREE SILVER PACKAGE UPGRADE that enables you to download the audio files – a $147 value.
The media library from last year’s Summer of Peace mapped peace from the inner to the international, including interviews with over 120 peacebuilders, like Arun Gandhi, Alice Walker, Jack Kornfield, Marilu Henner, and Matthew Fox – to name a few.
