The mission of the Moses Taylor Foundation is to improve the health and wellness of residents of and communities in Northeast Pennsylvania.
In pursuit of this mission, the foundation invests in the areas of primary health care for the economically disadvantaged, mental and behavioral health, dental care and oral health, healthcare workforce, and human services. Programs must be based in and promote the health of individuals in the Northeastern Pennsylvania counties of Bradford, Carbon, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Monroe, Pike, Schuylkill, Sullivan, Susquehanna, Wayne, and Wyoming.
The foundation awards operating grants, program grants, capital grants, and capacity-building grants. Proposals requesting up to $20,000 are reviewed on a rolling basis so as to respond quickly to community need.

The foundation does not fund individuals, religious organizations for religious or evangelical purposes, fundraising events, endowment funds, research, debt retirement, or lobbying.
