Grants to Massachusetts nonprofit organizations for initiatives that benefit disadvantaged youth. Funding is intended for proposals to support new and existing programs, to increase organizational capacity, and to complete capital projects and purchases. Most grants are made to applicants serving disadvantaged, inner-city youth populations.

The primary mission of the Amelia Peabody Foundation is to increase the number, range, and depth of positive learning experiences available to materially disadvantaged young people living in the cities and towns of Massachusetts.The Foundation particularly favors grants that help organizations to leverage additional funds and that significantly increase an organization's ability and capacity to deliver its services. 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 acquisitions, for the renovation of existing buildings and facilities, for the repair, maintenance and purchase of equipment.

The kinds of grants that the Foundation likes to make are those that bring about real changes in the neighborhoods where people live. Grants may help an existing organization to increase its capacity for service where it is currently situated, but from time to time such grants will help the organization to establish a new facility where no such facility exists, bringing services to a neighborhood for the first time. Examples of such organizations and programs supported by Peabody grants are neighborhood and community centers, youth centers, charter schools, out of school time and sports programs with educational enrichment and mentoring components, YMCAs and YWCAs, Boys & Girls Clubs and classroom and facility technology improvements.

Estimated Size of Grant:

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 typically capital improvement grants or other grants which take an organization to a new level of operations in respect to the quality or quantity of services provided.

Term of Contract:

Most Peabody grants are for one year only. Three years are the maximum that will be considered.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Grants are only made to 501(c)(3) tax exempt organizations for projects and programs that are carried out in Massachusetts.

Please note that, to comply with Amelia Peabody Foundation specific requirements, the address printed on the IRS 501(c)(3) documentation for the applicant must be in Massachusetts. If the applicant's IRS 501(c)(3) address is not in Massachusetts a Fiscal Sponsor with a Massachusetts address on its 501(c)(3) must be used. Or, if an applicant is not 501(c)(3) qualified, it may use a Fiscal Sponsor which has such a Massachusetts 501(c)(3) address.

Grants are not made directly to individuals, nor are they made for; promotional videos; endowments; independent research; seed money, advertisements, sponsorships, or fund raising events; or for lobbying or other items listed in the Grant Agreement. Program-related investments (PRIs), as defined by the IRS, are not made.
