AGM Mourns the Passing of R. Bruce Taylor, husband of Janet C. Taylor

Associated Grant Makers mourns the passing of R. Bruce Taylor, husband of fomer AGM President Janet C. Taylor. Janet was one of the original staff members at AGM and served 9 years as President. AGM named its former library in honor of Ms. Taylor, and after the closing of the library in 2013, AGM renamed its print collection the Janet C. Taylor Print Collection.  Mr. Taylor died unexpectedly at home on November 6, 2014. We extend our deepest sympathy to Janet and Mr. Taylor's entire family and friends.

But just as more people reach out to help, cities are biting back at those hands feeding the homeless.
