Partner or work closely with this funder

Peery Foundation is a great partner (that's right, not just a funder) to work with in achieving your mission. They are the definition of grantee-centric ( a term i didn't even know about until i met them). From being thoughtful enough to schedule meetings in locations that are more convenient for the (prospective) grantee than for them, to insisting that they don't create new work for you in the due diligence process, encouraging you to share existing milestones and planning documents. The team is friendly during the due diligence process and that usual grantor-grantee dynamic of unequal footing goes away a few minutes into any conversation with them once you see how committed they are to supporting social innovation and helping you achieve social impact.

Grant Applicant - applied in 2016

The Peery Foundation has been one of our best partners. They make diligence, applying and reporting very straightforward. They set deadlines that they stick to, and those deadlines are far enough in the future that we can plan accordingly. They willingly make introductions to other funders and endorse us publicly. They are still trying to work out how best to provide technical assistance / in-kind support - they are asking the right questions about this, working to ensure that any support they offer will actually be of help to us.
