Amelia Peabody Foundation
Most Peabody grants range from $10,000 to $1,000,000 and are made to organizations that serve disadvantaged, inner-city youth populations. Most often the organizations receiving grants will be located in the very neighborhoods that they would serve by their efforts and will employ staff members of the populations that they serve. Additionally, Peabody grants are made for almost any project that serves to promote and enhance the grantee organization's mission: for existing and new programs, for capital acquitions, for the renovation of existing buildings and facilities, for the repair, maintenace and purchace of equipment.
Peabody grants are made in a wide range of sizes, but always correspond to the requirements of the proposal, the size of the organization and its capacity to accomplish the grant purpose. Most grants fall in the $10,000 to $50,000 range for programs or operations. A smaller number of grants, generally in the $50,000 to $100,000 range, are capital improvement grants or other grants which also take an organization to a new level of operations in respect to the quality or quantity of services provided.
Grants are reviewed on a quarterly basis.
