Pax World’s Global Citizen Program enables Pax World shareholders to earmark portions of their dividends and/or capital gains as a contribution to one of two non-profit organizations that are working to alleviate poverty, empower women and promote sustainable development around the globe, Mercy Corps and Women Thrive Worldwide.
Mercy Corps works to alleviate suffering, poverty and oppression by helping people build secure, productive and just communities. For 30 years, in the midst of economic collapse, political transitions, armed conflict and natural disasters, Mercy Corps has been helping millions of individuals, families and communities turn crises into opportunities for sustainable, positive change.
Pax World has worked with Mercy Corps for more than 20 years to bring help and hope to some of the world’s poorest families. In that time, Pax World investors’ donations have supported humanitarian work in such areas such as Honduras, North Korea and the Darfur region of Sudan. In particular, Pax World investors’ contributions were pivotal in the creation of the Mercy Corps Global Emergency Operation, which addresses humanitarian crises worldwide and serves as a technical resource on emergency preparedness and security. By designating portions of their dividend or capital gains distributions, Pax World investors have contributed over $1 million to Mercy Corps since 1998.

Women Thrive Worldwide is the leading non-profit organization shaping U.S. policy to help women in developing countries lift themselves out of poverty.
Women Thrive develops, shapes and advocates for U.S. international assistance and trade policies in Washington D.C. that prioritize women and foster economic opportunity for women living in poverty. The organization brings together a diverse coalition of over 55 organizations and 45,000 individuals united in the belief that women are the key to ending global poverty, and empowering them is not only right, it’s also the most effective long-term solution to world poverty. By designating portions of their dividends or capital gains distributions, Pax World investors can support this important work.
