Jeff Taylor Bean Pots to Bell Towers Fund
Colleagues and friends of the late Jeff Taylor are creating a memorial fund to provide continuing support for the kinds of projects that benefited from his amazing creativity, energy and ability to bring diverse interests together.
The fund will be held at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and be administered by a group of his colleagues and family members. Grants from the fund will be made to any of Jeff’s diverse areas of interests including but not limited to: sustainable community planning, economic development, reuse of historic buildings, community betterment, cultural stewardship, mentorship and natural resource conservation.
Jeff was an active member of the NH Planners Association, a supporter of planning at all levels, and a recipient of many awards for his work in the planning field. The fund originators are in process of inviting contributions to the fund through both personal meetings and mailings to many of the people who knew and worked with Jeff.
