Moses Taylor Foundation dedicates a minimum of half of our resources to broadly respond to health needs within our 11-county region. We prioritize responding quickly and meaningfully to emerging needs that arise in our community, and continue to play a critical role strengthening the safety net of health and human service providers in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Our grantmaking priorities mirror the needs of our community partners.  To that end, the Foundation’s Community Responsive Grants prioritize:

  • Primary healthcare for the economically disadvantaged
  • Mental health and behavioral health
  • Dental care and oral health
  • Healthcare workforce
  • Human services

We retain a primary focus in Lackawanna County, but welcome grant requests from Bradford, Carbon, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Schuylkill, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Wayne and Wyoming Counties.

In our continuous commitment to the health needs of the community, the Foundation accepts requests our partners initiate and also cultivates requests we deem critical to meet community needs.
