Former UN secretary-general Ban Ki-moon once said: “The world is over-armed and peace is under-funded.” By making a recurring donation to ICAN, you can help change this. Our “BANefactors” are generous individuals who donate a small sum of money each month for the abolition of nuclear weapons.

Nuclear-armed nations spend over $100 billion ever year maintaining and upgrading their nuclear arsenals. We hope that you can spare just a few dollars to help ICAN build a safer world. If we fail to act, sooner or later our luck will run out – and the consequences will be catastrophic. Disarmament saves lives.

Our work

With our small budget, we have already had a major impact on global policy-making. In 2017 we were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for our “ground-breaking efforts” to achieve a treaty-based prohibition on nuclear weapons. This was the first time the prize had ever gone to an Australian-born group or individual.

At the United Nations in July 2017, 122 governments voted to adopt the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. This new legal instrument provides a pathway forward at a time of alarming global crisis. Much work still lies ahead – and we need your help to ensure that the treaty achieves its aims.

Your donation will enable us to...
  • Coordinate campaign activities across Asia–Pacific – a region whose support will be crucial to the success of the treaty
  • Enlist the help of parliamentarians across the political spectrum to ensure that Australia signs and ratifies the treaty
  • Educate the public about the catastrophic consequences of the use of nuclear weapons and the importance of the treaty
  • Amplify the voices of Aboriginal and Pacific nuclear test survivors, including by facilitating their involvement in UN meetings
  • Safeguard the future of our shared planet and its many peoples.

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) is a coalition of non-governmental organisations in more than one hundred countries promoting adherence to and implementation of the treaty.

ICAN was awarded the 2017 Nobel Peace Prize for our work to raise awareness of the devastating humanitarian impacts of nuclear weapons and for our role in achieving the treaty.
