Amelia Peabody  Charitable Fund

Prior to her death in 1984, Amelia Peabody personally gave more than $8 million to various charities. The Amelia Peabody Charitable Fund was formally established under her estate plan as a private foundation to continue her philanthropy in perpetuity. Since 1986, the trustees have reviewed more than 6,400 grant applications and awarded nearly $220 million to organizations within the sphere of her varied interests.

Amelia Peabody's intellect, gentility, compassion, curiosity, and artistic spirit will live on in perpetuity through the trustees' efforts on her behalf.
