Neil and Amelia McDaniel Charitable Trust: Grants for Global Health

OVERVIEW: The McDaniel Charitable Trust supports organizations with broad approaches to improving health in least developed countries around the world.

IP TAKE: While the trust has no problem supporting its grantees over multiple years, few new organizations appear on its grantee list.

PROFILE: The San Francisco, California-based Neil and Amelia McDaniel Charitable Trust was founded in 1977. This modest supporter of global health does not employ a formal staff or operate a website. McDaniel is a relatively small organization with assets of around $6 million to $8 million. Despite its size, the trust tends to support larger international global health organizations working in least developed countries around the world, such as Partners in Health and Doctors Without Borders. Its tax filings reveals grantmaking to a few small to mid-sized groups that are building capacity, such as the group Last Mile Health. 

The trust tends to support broad-based global health efforts rather than those related to a specific condition, disease, or healthcare topic. Grants range from $1,000 to $20,000. Most grants range between $1,000 to $5,000.

The Neil and Amelia McDaniel Charitable Trust tends to give multi-year support to its grantees. It does not accept unsolicited requests for funding or grant applications, instead opting to proactively seek out organization to fund.
