Mission:
To continue Amelia Peabody’s legacy of philanthropy through grants to qualified non-profit organizations in the New England area that further her life-long interests in health (human and animal), visual arts, land conservation and historic preservation. The Fund also makes grants in support of capital projects and capital purchases to social service and youth service organizations in Massachusetts only.

 

The Amelia Peabody Charitable Fund is an independent private foundation, established by Amelia Peabody in 1964 and dedicated to continuing her philanthropy. 

In the 20 years until her death in 1984, Amelia Peabody personally directed more than $8 million in charitable giving from the Fund.  Since then, the Trustees have reviewed more than 5,700 applications and awarded more than $182 million in grants.

Today, the Trustees seek to perpetuate the interests and work of Amelia Peabody—and to keep something of her intellect, gentility, compassion, curiosity, and artistic spirit alive in the world.

All grants are made in support of specific capital projects and purchases to achieve specific objectives.
