Grants

The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation seeks community partners that share our focus on fostering entrepreneurship, innovation and economic opportunity 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.

LTFF accepts grant applications annually in the month of January. See below for application details.

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. LTFF provides grants to 501c3 nonprofits that support entrepreneurship, innovation and economic opportunity.

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.
