Partnering to Create Change for Babies

Perigee Fund’s work is grounded in the power of early relationships to end intergenerational trauma. We partner with leaders and organizations to bring about enduring and equitable systems change. We fund strategies that shift practice, policy, and resources so that families impacted by trauma have greater access to mental health care and relationship-based support in the places where they are during pregnancy and early childhood. 

We strive to balance the power we hold as a funder with intentional consideration for relationships with BIPOC leaders, organizations, and change agents that have not historically had equitable access to philanthropy.

Centering Babies and Families

Ideally, infants and their caregivers are surrounded by extended family, community, and systems and policies that support the caregiving relationship. If these extended structures do not live up to their roles, babies and caregivers may experience negative impacts that can last a lifetime.

Funding Approach Overview

Perigee Fund makes grants on a rolling basis throughout the year. We use different grant mechanisms including, but not limited to, time-and-purpose-bound projects, capacity-building grants, negotiated general operating support, funder collaboratives/pooled funding, and more.

Our program team members seek out organizations positioned to equitably advance our prenatal-age 3 priorities. We issue occasional requests for proposals (RFPs) that are open to all applicants who meet specified eligibility criteria. Outside of RFPs, proposals are by invitation. The best way to stay in touch with us about funding opportunities is to sign up for our distribution list using the form below.
