OVERVIEW: The Jack Deloss Taylor Charitable Trust takes a broad-based approach to its grantmaking, and largely focuses on food security, healthcare and medicine.
IP TAKE: Taylor is a quiet, yet approachable, funder that accepts unsolicited requests for funding. Its tax filings reveal many repeated grantees its tax filings, so the space for new grantees may be limited. It may be important for grantseekers to get their applications in early.
PROFILE: The Wisconsin-based Jack Deloss Taylor Charitable Trust seeks to help people in need around the world. Though not a stated interest of the low-profile outfit—not one that we can find, anyway—Taylor pays special funding attention to nonsecular organizations that work with marginalized and vulnerable populations around the world.
Overall, the trust supports fundamental needs such as food, healthcare and medicine. Recent tax filings suggest a preference for local and grassroots outfits that work on the community level.
Taylor does not emphasize any particular aspect global health focus and remains open to various causes. For example, the trust backed the Amazon Medical Project, which provides primary care to people living in the remote Amazon basin in northeastern Peru, as well as International Action, a Haitian organization focused on clean water projects.
Grants are generally modest here, typically ranging from $5,000 to $25,000; however, a few go well above $25,000. The trust does not impose geographic restrictions in its grantmaking.
