    to Support PTC’s Innovative Solutions to Global Challenges 

Our Mission

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. We co-create, teach and facilitate solutions that emphasize voluntary action, growth, healing and the transformation of inner and outer conflict as paths to peace.

Who We Are

Our organization works to solve complex global problems like war, poverty and inequality by identifying and focusing on the core values and subsystems that make up a community, using our pioneering technology, the Matrix of Peace™ Systems Model (MOP).

The MOP is used to design and actualize peaceful and prosperous societies – big and small. It begins by illuminating the core values and consciousness ecosystem making up a community and identifying the values needed for peace-building. Secondly, the MOP highlights the best practices within and among the three key subsystems of any society: commerce (businesses), civil society (churches, nonprofits), and law (the legal framework of the community). These subsystems, all imbued with the core values of any society, all work together to co-produce peace. In other words, sustainable peace is a byproduct of a society whose commercial, civil society and legal subsystems co-operate interdependently and draw upon shared, peace-optimizing values.

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.
