Our Mission:

We believe in the power of research, education and community engagement to end gun violence.

We believe that gun violence is PREVENTABLE, and the remedies we seek to this crisis are in research, education and community engagement. Our mission is to fund research and education that will directly inform prevention policies, programs and practices in communities impacted by gun violence.

Our Impact

In 2018, Grandmothers Against Gun Violence Foundation funded a series of studies focused on firearm ownership in Washington State and the risks of unsafe firearm storage, particularly for vulnerable groups such as children and the elderly. The three research projects focused on firearm ownership and storage practices in Washington State. This research was conducted by the University of Washington’s School of Public Health, the King County Public Health Department, and the Harborview Injury Prevention & Research Center.


“In terms of research funding, gun violence is one of the most neglected public health crises of our time.”
