The Charity & Security Network is a resource and advocacy center for nonprofit organizations to promote and protect their ability to carry out effective programs that promote peace and human rights, aid civilians in areas of disaster and armed conflict, and build democratic governance.

While anyone can help us advance this mission by making a donation today, membership in the Charity & Security Network is reserved for civil society stakeholders, including organizations and their staff, volunteers, board members, grantmakers, religious leaders, and academics, as well as lawyers and experts that represent nonprofits.

Members enjoy a range of benefits including:

  • Opportunities to participate in working groups, educational events, and collaborative advocacy campaigns.

  • Member-only updates and analysis in emails and membership calls.

  • Networking and coalition building opportunities with a wide range of civil society actors working in peacebuilding, humanitarian, and human rights spaces.
