Grants

The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation seeks community partners that share our focus on fostering entrepreneurship, innovation and community engagement in Tulsa. Specifically, we partner with organizations aiming to grow and sustain Tulsa’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, encourage community initiatives that enhance and enrich Tulsa citizens while bringing the city together and support innovative programs and projects.

Eligibility

The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation only accepts grant requests from charitable
organizations that are designated as tax exempt under Internal Revenue Service Code 501(c)(3) and are not classified as private foundations.

Geography

The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation’s primary geographic focus is the local Tulsa community. From time to time, the Board of Directors will consider small grants for programs outside the Tulsa area if deemed particularly relevant to the mission of the Foundation.
