WHAT IS THE XERIC FOUNDATION?

The Xeric Foundation is a private, nonprofit corporation established in 1992 by Peter A. Laird, co-creator of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Planet Racers.


Grants were awarded to nonprofit and charitable organizations in western Massachusetts for 22 years. Click here for

For 20 years, grants were also made to support the work of comic book creators who wanted to self-publish. Click here for a letter from Peter Laird explaining the change in focus of grant-giving.
