The Taft Foundation invests in non-profit service providers in the New York City Metro Area and Southeast Florida (Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties).

The Foundation supports organizations that are mission-aligned and demonstrate positive impact on the community, with a focus on reaching disadvantaged and under-resourced communities. We fund direct services that meet critical needs and demonstrate effective solutions. We do not fund capital projects, endowments, or academic research.

How We Fund

We believe that solving complex issues requires partnership and collaboration. We rely on the experience and knowledge of stakeholders, as well as the dedicated leaders and experts on the ground, to identify critical needs and best practices. We are always learning and using data to inform our grantmaking; we encourage the same of our grantees. We believe our funding can facilitate lasting change by leveraging available public resources and generating creative ideas for addressing complex challenges.

Our grantmaking is by invitation only. The Taft Foundation does not accept unsolicited requests.
