Operations Update: Teleworking and Important Dates


Moses Taylor Foundation continues to follow mitigation efforts set forth by the PA Department of Health, including guidance around teleworking. Foundation staff continue to work remotely and are available via email, phone and teleconference. Email addresses and cell phone numbers can be found on the Foundation Staff page of our website and also in our signatures on all email correspondence.

We realize that many of you may also still be working from home during this time, or preparing to work at home more often as we enter the fall and winter. We found this article helpful in setting up our own at-home office spaces and wanted to share it with you. It includes a few suggestions on turning your makeshift home workspace into an ergonomically correct workstation. Click here to read How to set up a work-from-home ‘office’ for the long term.

Important Dates

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, you can find more details about our application process and schedule a pre-submission meeting on the Responsive Grantmaking section of our website. The Foundation's upcoming quarterly grant deadlines are:

  • January 2, 2021
  • April 1, 2021
  • July 1, 2021
  • October 1, 2021

While proposals greater than $20,000 are accepted on a quarterly basis, discretionary proposals ($20,000 or below) are reviewed on a rolling basis to respond quickly to community need. These proposals can be submitted at any time and don’t adhere to the board-approved grants schedule.
