So many antiwar foundations & NGOs, so much war

     There are 60 some antiwar foundations that belong to the Peace and Security Funders Group. The individual foundations give grants to antiwar NGOs. There are 50 some antiwar NGOs. 


Should antiwar NGOs unite into a collaborative network, pool their resources, develop a strategic plan to stop America's endless wars and ask foundations to create a large institutional grant program to help fund the start up and initial operating expenses of the network?  Should antiwar foundations pool their resources and create a large institutional grant program to induce antiwar NGOs to unite and qualify for a grant to undertake massive and strategic "waging war on war" (figuratively speaking) reforms?

What is your opinion of antiwar foundations and NGOs and the work they do?
