Dear Peter,

For many of us, the holidays are a time to give thanks, take stock and look forward to a new year. At the Nuclear Threat Initiative, we are doing just that – and we want you to know how grateful we are for your support. Without you, we couldn’t make important strides toward building a safer world, and we need your continued support now .

There’s no question that 2017 has been a challenging year for global security – from North Korea’s dangerous and repeated nuclear provocations to rising tensions with Russia to growing concerns about terrorist attacks and cyber threats to nuclear weapons and facilities. Looking ahead, there is a lot of work to do.

We want you to know that despite this difficult landscape, NTI has made measurable progress on our goals this year. Just two examples: We helped launch an IAEA-operated low-enriched uranium bank in Kazakhstan that we jump-started a decade ago to prevent the dangerous spread of nuclear material and weapon-making capability to countries seeking nuclear power. We also made a significant announcement with New York City. Hospitals have committed by 2023 to remove and replace the 30 devices throughout the city that contain radiological material powerful enough to be used in a "dirty bomb" terror attack. There is safer, equally effective equipment available for medical use and research, and we are working on similar programs in the state of California and elsewhere around the world.

This kind of work takes vision, leadership, persistence and the ability to bring all kinds of people, institutions and governments together to work cooperatively. It also takes your generosity.

With our new CEO Ernie Moniz on board to work with our co-founder Sam Nunn, and NTI’s expert team, we are poised to make ever greater progress in 2018. But we can’t do it without your help.

So as you consider your end-of-year giving, we hope you will include NTI . Our work to prevent catastrophic attacks with weapons of mass destruction and disruption wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of our supporters. Please help us build a safer world – now and for future generations.

We wish you the very best this holiday season.

Thank you for thinking of us.

Your friends at NTI
