Historical Note

The Beyond War Foundation was founded in 1982 in response to the threat of nuclear war, and with the goal of ending all war on earth. The foundation published a monthly newsletter On Beyond War and awarded Beyond War Awards to individuals and groups that worked for peace. At its height, the foundation included 24,000 active members and hosted in-person meetings in 23 states and internationally.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Beyond War changed its name to Foundation for Global Community and expanded its mission to environmental and social justice issues. For 14 years Foundation for Global Community produced a bi-monthly newsletter Timeline, which focused on cultural change. In 2006 the foundation began liquidating its assets in order to make grants for a variety of social projects. The Foundation for Global Community ended all activities on December 31st, 2010.
