OVERVIEW: The T&J Meyer foundation supports health and healthcare organizations that work globally in developing countries.
IP TAKE: Meyer is not an accessible funder, but it gives both program specific and unrestricted grants. It also supports several new grantees each year. So while it might take a bit more legwork to get on Meyer’s radar, it may well be worth the time and energy.
PROFILE: The T&J Meyer foundation keeps a low profile. It does not operate a website, so its public profile is practically non-existent. However, with offices in the United States and the United Kingdom, the foundation is not completely inaccessible.
Several years of tax filings reveal that it largely supports health and healthcare organizations working in developing countries around the world.
To give you an idea of Meyer grantees look like: the foundation tends to support large organizations, such as Heifer International and Partners in Health. However, smaller groups that work within its interest areas still receive funding. In the past, it has awarded grants to organizations such as Last Mile Health and Hope through Health.
Meyer grants typically range from $10,000 to $50,000, with a few in the $100,000 to $225,000 range. On a smaller scale, Meyer also supports organizations working at the intersection of access to healthcare and poverty.
It appears the foundation also gives a healthy number of unrestricted grants in addition to its project or program specific grants. The foundation does not accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding. Not all is lost, however. Meyer seems to have a handful of groups to which it offers multi-year support, while it seeks innovative global health and healthcare organizations to fund.
