Your support delivers policy solutions and trains tomorrow's leaders in gun violence prevention.

Gun violence claims more than 100 lives every day in America. Hundreds more are shot and injured each day, and the effects of gun violence reach almost every American.

For more than twenty-five years, the Center for Gun Violence Prevention and Policy, formerly known as the Center for Gun Policy and Research, has served as the preeminent source of non-partisan gun policy research and information. Policy makers, advocates, journalists, and other scientists rely upon our research and expertise to inform their own work and make a difference in their communities.

Gun violence, including suicides, is one of our nation's most pressing concerns for public health and safety. Yet government funding for research that could inform policies and programs to prevent gun violence is miniscule in comparison to the scope of the problem.

Through donations from foundations and individuals, we are able to answer some of the most important questions in gun violence by conducting policy analyses and research.

Our donors have invested in important, lifesaving discoveries about which programs and policies reduce gun violence, and we remain committed to translating these findings so policy makers in communities across the United States can apply them to their work.

We are grateful to our existing funders and can do even more with your support.
