Council for a Livable World Candidate Fund
An Investment in A Progressive National Security Policy
The Council for a Livable World Candidate Fund and “PeacePAC” endorse congressional candidates who share our goals of increasing peace and security through principled national security and foreign policy. Once we endorse candidates, we raise much-needed campaign funds for them.
Our members can contribute directly to the Council’s Candidate Fund, a political action committee that raised approximately $1.4 million for candidates running in 2016. Since 1962, we’ve helped to elect more than 350 members of Congress who are supportive of principled national security and foreign policy positions, including arms control.
“PeacePAC” is the arm of Council for a Livable World Candidate Fund that endorses candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives throughout the country, and keeps them informed on national security and foreign policy issues once elected.
The Council and our candidates rely on contributions from thousands of individuals just like you across the country.
Your contribution to the candidates through the Council for a Livable World Candidate Fund also does double duty: It counts as a contribution from you—the donor—and it counts as a donation from the movement for more peace and security. Your support means that together we can help ensure there are voices of reason and a political force in Washington for a more livable world.
When you give directly to candidates through the Candidate Fund—or as Council for a Livable World Member who has given $25 or more in the past year—you also will receive critical election analysis from our experts as well as opportunities to get to know the candidates. You also will have the choice to support these candidates and our work by donating on our website or through the mail directly to:
- Council-Endorsed House and Senate Candidates of your choice
- Council for a Livable World to support our extensive electoral and lobbying efforts
- Council for a Livable World Candidate Fund which coordinates the fundraising for the candidates you care about most (members only)
- Who We’ve Helped Elect
- Donate to Candidates

We act as the conduit for your candidate contribution, passing your donation on directly to the candidate you specify. When you donate online, we retain a small portion of the cost of processing your contribution (mostly credit card fees).
Council for a Livable World Candidate Fund accepts donations only from members of Council for a Livable World and their immediate families. All donations from other sources will be returned.
