OVERVIEW: The Nancy Taylor Foundation for Chronic Diseases supports research into a broad range of chronic diseases.
IP TAKE: While this funder does not prioritize any specific illnesses, it does seem to support the study of some lesser-known and likely underfunded diseases.
PROFILE: The Nancy Taylor Foundation for Chronic Diseases keeps a low public profile: it employs just one formal staff member and does not operate a website. So it’s not surprising that it may fly under the funding radar for disease organizations seeking grants. As the name of the foundation indicates, it backs research into chronic diseases.
Tax documents over the past few years suggest that Taylor does not prioritize any specific illnesses. In the recent past, it has supported research projects related to juvenile idiopathic arthritis, autoimmune diseases, scleroderma, obsessive compulsive disorder, and hemophagocytic syndrome. Past grantees for these projects include Yale University, the University of Pittsburgh, and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Taylor’s grants generally range from $100,000 to $200,000. It accepts unsolicited grant applications and requests for funding throughout the year. Applications should be sent to the address provided below.
