Each year, the PeyBack Foundation funds various programs in Colorado, Indiana, Louisiana, and Tennessee. The Foundation has distributed more than $10 million in programs and grants since 2002, including over $1 Million in May 2015 to 144 youth-based organizations. The deadline for the 2016 PeyBack Foundation Grant Applications is February 10, 2016.
The PeyBack Foundation focuses primarily on economically disadvantaged youth. Emphasis is placed on programs that have a direct benefit to children through relationships and activities. Programs that are intended to enrich the lives of disadvantaged youth through activities conducted outside the typical school day (i.e., after-school and summer programming) are particularly favored by the Foundation.
