Funds for Programs Serving Disadvantaged Youth in Massachusetts
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. Priority is given to organizations that serve disadvantaged, inner-city youth populations. The Foundation prefers to make grants that bring about real changes in neighborhoods. Such grants may help an existing organization to increase its capacity for service where it is currently situated, but sometimes 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 funded organizations and programs include youth centers, charter schools, and out of school time and sports programs with educational and mentoring components. Requests are reviewed quarterly; the remaining application deadlines for 2019 are April 9, July 9, and October 1. Visit the Foundation’s website to submit an online application.
