The Peace Pot

from your heart
      to the heart of peace

How it works

Every penny contributed to the Peace Pot stays in the Peace Pot for all of eternity. As an Endowment the principal keeps growing and no funds can be taken out of the principal. As a result interest is earned on the principal grows as the endowment grows. The Peace Pot belongs to all the Citizens of Peacetown. 

The principal is kept in an interest bearing account at a local credit union. Once per year, on the winter solstice, the interest that has accrued over the year, is taken out and used to fund peace projects through the world.

Each contributor has one vote to determine the percentage of funds that will go towards a project. This is the Voice of the People.

One woman and one man from each race (red, yellow, black, white & brown) will determine which projects will be funded each year, based on the biggest social impact.

"A penny's worth of Peace...

         ...will stop a dollar's worth of war!"
