The kinds of grants that we like most 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.
