In 1963 the Peace Fund adopted a charter. B. N. Polevoi was named chairman of the administrative board.

Teams of workers take part in the work of the Peace Fund. Commissions to aid the fund have been established at enterprises, kolkhozes, sovkhozes, various establishments, scientific and educational institutions, artistic unions, cooperative organizations, and housing maintenance offices. The resources of the Peace Fund are used to aid peoples fighting against imperialism and struggling for peace, freedom, independence, and social progress. The aid supplied by the Peace Fund is coordinated with other measures by Soviet social organizations to support anti-imperialist national liberation struggles around the world.
