Our Mission: PTC creates, teaches and facilitates solutions to complex challenges that raise consciousness, advancing prosperity and peace.

Who We Are

Peace Through Commerce (PTC) is a nonprofit organization with a unique method of peacebuilding that unites civil society, government and business — large and small — as collaborators. Our organization seeks to solve complex global issues such as conflict, poverty and inequality by identifying and focusing on the core values and subsystems that make up a community, using our cross-sector technology, the Matrix of Peace Model.

PTC Engages

  • Building Peace through Business

    PTC’s Fellowship Program brings together women in the Middle East to showcase how entrepreneurship can transform conflict into healing and prosperity.

How We Work in the World 


    We bring together leaders, organizations, businesses and ideas to catalyze new, multi-sector approaches to accelerate peace-building.


    We collaborate with partners in peace-building and work with clients from different sectors to create context-specific solutions for advancing peace and prosperity.


    We focus on and demonstrate how women can make their own communities more conscious, peaceful and prosperous through partnerships and trade.


Supporters of PTC’s mission to spread peace and prosperity

  • I believe business leaders can liberate the extraordinary power of business and commerce to create a world in which all people live lives full of purpose, love, and creativity- a world of compassion, freedom, and prosperity. I endorse Peace Through Commerce because it is dedicated to teaching the principles that animate how commerce, consciousness, and law can work inter-dependently to achieve sustainable peace. I wholeheartedly endorse PTC and encourage others to give PTC their support.
