Make a Difference

EWI's success for almost 30 years is built upon the decisions of many men and women from all walks of life to step forward and become part of the EWI family.

We welcome your participation as we work to make the world a safer place. Consider the following ways in which you can make a difference:

SUPPORT our work to help ensure the world is a more peaceful and secure place to raise our children and grandchildren. Your gift today enables us to take action against increasing threats to global security. We invite you to learn about our vision for the future.

As a non-profit fiercely independent from governments, we rely on support from individuals, family foundations, corporations, and private foundations that share a commitment to making a difference.
