- Mission Specific: Peabody's philanthropic legacy and interests are of paramount concern.
- Geography: The Board focuses its giving in Massachusetts.
- Capital: The Board favors capital projects and purchases when the need is relevant to the community served, and where a large area or number of people will benefit.
- Lasting Impact: The Board favors initiatives with measurable, significant, and lasting impact.
- Likelihood of Success: The Board looks for well-conceived and researched projects with specific and well defined outcomes. A logical implementation plan, with a realistic and appropriately detailed supporting budget, timeframes, multiple sources of funding for the undertaking, and the credibility of the organization are important elements in evaluating the proposal.
- Proportional and Appropriated: The Board expects the dollar amount requested to be in proportion to size of the projectas well as the size of the organization.
- Well Leveraged: The Board looks favorably on organizations that can secure funding from multiple sources. In a major capital project, the trustees expect the fundraising process to be well along before receiving a proposal. Challenge grants are sometimes considered by the Trustees to help grant seekers secure funding from other sources.
- Community Support: The Board looks for evidence that the organization and its work are valued by the constituents it serves and surrounding community.
- Soundness of Organization: The Board favors supporting well-managed organizations with good oversight and relatively low administration and other overhead expenses. An organization's financial statement and condition are important considerations.
