Peery is the most grantee-centric funder I know so far. I didn't really know what that term meant until I started having to write grants for other potential funders. They build relationships, take risks, hold you accountable in positive and supportive ways, are interested in learning about your work, and are always looking for ways to improve their work. They make me want to always improve my work too.

Pros

Reasonable character restrictions, Reasonable reporting terms, Positive leader in the field

The Peery Foundation is my favorite funder! They constantly demonstrate their deep commitment to their grantees' success, taking just as much responsibility for it as we do. They work hard on our behalf—from pitching us to other funders, providing strategic advice when asked, joining our hiring committees, providing capacity-building opportunities like the Duarte Academy, and taking the time to think hard about how they can help any challenges we can face. They also do a great job of looking after the leaders they support, recognizing the intense nature of entrepreneurship on the people involved. And everyone who works there is deeply committed to social impact, to learning, and to engaging with the community in a deep way.

Pros

Straightforward application, Reasonable reporting terms, Positive leader in the field

The Peery Foundation is a low-touch, grantee-centric org that walks the walk. They do everything they can to make reporting easy and streamlined for grantees and are fine with common reporting across foundations. One of our favorite funders!

Pros

Flexible guidelines, Reasonable reporting terms, Gives more than money

The Peery Foundation is truly grantee-focused; conversations and site visits generally take the place of formal proposals and reports, which is very efficient and creates a feeling of a true partnership.

I love Peery. They take a very practical approach to grant applications and reporting requirements once you are a grantee. We do milestone checkins over the phone with a brief agenda. They also offer lots of support programs for grantee but do not pressure you to go if it's not relevant to you.

Pros

The most engaged funder we've worked with. But extremely aware and respectful of our time. The only institutional funder that has gone above and beyond the common sentiment of "we want to allow you to do the work and not burden you with too much unnecessary grant proposal and reporting work". They've become engaged in a truly supportive manner that only enhances our work.

Pros

Positive leader in the field
