The Lenny Peters Foundation
The Lenny Peters Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) charity organization whose goal is to assist those in need around the world – and even closer to home – right here in North Carolina.
Originated by Dr. Lenny Peters, the Foundation recognizes and focuses on the needs of individuals in the local Piedmont Triad of North Carolina, particularly those who find themselves experiencing temporary financial hardships and need help in getting back on track.
Dr. Peters, who is a strong believer in philanthropy, has provided thousands of dollars of support over the years through the Lenny Peters Foundation. Many recipients have been helped through his donations to the Piedmont Triad’s United Way campaign, and even some of his own employees have received help in the form of monthly gifts to aid them through financial hardship.
The Lenny Peters Foundation continues today by providing one-time charitable grants or donations to needy individuals in the Piedmont Triad or other local charity organizations. These grants or donations are awarded on a monthly basis and are meant to give a hand up – not a hand out – to those in need.
Because we work from a base of charitable donations, we welcome anyone who would like to contribute to this Piedmont Triad nonprofit 501 (c) (3) charity. Donating funds to our charitable organization is always tax-deductible. Just click on Donate in the website header to find out how.

History & Mission
Dr. Lenny Peters began the Lenny Peters Foundation out of a desire to “give back” in kind for what he has been blessed by God to achieve and accomplish in his life. One could, in fact, say that the history of the Foundation is Dr. Peters’ own history: a provider born out of the necessity, and calling, to assist people in need.
The recipients of the Foundation’s gifts are from various backgrounds with differing stories. But their need is all the same. Answering the call to address that understanding, Dr. Peters started the Lenny Peters Foundation and began the mission of helping those in the Piedmont Triad community who need temporary, or one-time, financial assistance, while empowering and instilling confidence in them for their future.
