Partnering to Create Change for Babies

Perigee Fund’s work is grounded in the power of relationships to bring about change. We partner with leaders, organizations, and communities to build on their strengths, address their challenges, and create new connections. Our vision is that through these partnerships, all parents and primary caregivers are equitably supported in caring for their children with confidence and joy.

We strive to balance the power we hold as a funder with intentional consideration for relationships with BIPOC leaders, organizations, and communities 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.

Grant Process 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, general operating support, funder collaboratives, and more.

Our program team members seek out organizations positioned to equitably advance our prenatal-to-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.
