The purpose of this cause is to help faith communities and society meet the urgent demand for cultivating young diverse leaders’ development of cognitive skills to serve effectively in professional ministry.

Faith Communities are facing critical leadership shortages, with three times more leaders over 65 than under 40. According to research by George Barna, “If the church is going to leave a permanent mark on the community through a growing body of changing lives, it must constantly expand its leadership development quality and capacity.” --The Habits of Highly Effective Churches: Being Strategic in Your God-Given Ministry.

This program partners with seminaries to provide merit and need-based tuition assistance grants to assist diverse populations of low-and-moderate-income faith group leaders serving small remote rural communities of faith. The aim is to mentor them, enable them to focus on their studies and not stress over finances, and graduate without seminary student loan debt.

Impact donors show compassion in meeting basic human needs in emergency relief for any person or group experiencing catastrophic circumstances beyond their control.

August 7, 2020, the Aspen Institute research findings on the impact of COVID-19 revealed that the United States is facing the most severe housing crisis in history. An estimated 30–40 million people in America are at risk of eviction in the next several months. The pre-pandemic eviction rate was 3.6 million annually. Black and Latinx individuals and families comprise roughly 80 percent of those facing eviction pre-pandemic.

According to April 20, 2020, CANDID blog post, the COVID-19 pandemic has further illuminated widened gaps in wages, transportation, employment, access to quality health care, housing stability, food security, technology, education equity, social justice, and more. https://www.poorpeoplescampaign.org/resource/factsheets/

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To further educational equity and improve student outcomes by encouraging highly capable low to moderate-income students, like those at the Marjean Taylor-Myatt Head Start Center in Holly Springs, to become STEM graduates.

AMBITIOUS YET ACHIEVABLE GOAL 1: By May 2025, To inspire, educate, resource, mentor, and graduate culturally diverse groups of 300 discerning Millennials and Generation Z to accept the opportunity to prepare professionally for leadership in education, science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.

AMBITIOUS YET ACHIEVABLE GOAL 2: By 2025, expand leadership capacity and quality by making accredited education accessible and affordable for 25-underrepresented low to moderate-income seminarians and graduate them with zero student loan debt.

AMBITIOUS YET ACHIEVABLE GOAL 3: By 2030, attract and clinically train to accredited CPE board certification standards a minimum of 75 master's degree-level. Mobilizing ChaplainCare personnel to join a coalition aimed at reducing veteran deaths caused by suicide through their service in multifaceted communities within K-12 schools, government agencies, and the corporate workforce.

AMBITIOUS YET ACHIEVABLE GOAL 4: By 2030, contribute to 60% of the nation's state-by-state regional goal for the current population ages 24 to 64 to have a real opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. According to the Lumina Foundation, "The United States faces an urgent and growing need for talent. Many more people of all races, ethnicities, ages, and income levels will need college degrees, certificates, industry certifications, and other credentials of value to join or remain in the middle class."

AMBITIOUS YET ACHIEVABLE GOAL 5: By 2024, leverage ChaplainCare to foster a culture for high-impact philanthropists working together to solve today's challenges and improve the quality of life of future generations by strengthening faith, leadership, and learning throughout and beyond the workforce.

In a radical collaborative corporate and educational institution collaborative partnership, Reverend Charlie E and Cinderella S Taylor Sr Foundation envisions expanding educational opportunities to close equity gaps.

STRATEGY 1: Support faith, leadership development, and life-long learning in Faith-friendly workplaces by providing ChaplainCare resilience programs and services that focus on individual and organizational purpose; fostering psychological safety, belonging, and trust; resilience and well-being where faith and mental health intersect; human-centered responsible leadership; navigating differences with respect for those holding opposing worldviews; and enabling organizational core values and corporate citizenship.

STRATEGY 2: Setting up pathways for workplace chaplains to earn six Clinical Pastoral Education Speciality units for clergy and laity with an accredited Master's Degree, accredited education certification as K-12 school chaplains, and trainer of trainers of proven suicide prevention, intervention, and postvention aftercare programs, in addition to evidence-based personal and professional mindset leadership development.

STRATEGY 3: In 2024, strengthen by 20% the endowment for our undergraduate scholarships, a crucial tool for bringing enthusiastic high school graduating seniors into accredited colleges, universities, and technical training programs to fill some of the STEM job vacancies.

STRATEGY 4: Sustaining the Marjean Taylor Myatt Ministerial Stipend, a vital gateway for advanced biblical, theological, and clinical leadership training opportunities to help young adult Preachers on Trial and seasoned laity take their ministry to the next level.

STRATEGY 5: Supporting distance learning degree programs at accredited theological education Institutions for faith leaders embarking on the first five years of ministry.

STRATEGY 6: Leverage the Association of Theological Schools robust Master's Degree pathways in four areas: Ministry, Leadership, Intercultural Studies (specializing in K-12 workplace chaplaincy), and Divinity.

STRATEGY 7: Promoting Asbury Theological Seminary's non-degree Certification in Leadership, Ministry, and Intercultural Studies for seasoned pastors, laity, and future workplace chaplains. Courses strengthen their pastoral leadership while providing CPU academic credit towards a postgraduate degree in theology.

STRATEGY 8: Holding meaningful conversations, cultivating, stewarding, and thanking entrepreneurs who mentor our students.

STRATEGY 9: Integrating Financial Freedom Principles and Practices in the Mentoring Continuum for 21st Century Community Learning Center family programs.

STRATEGY 10: Establishing collaborative partnerships with other non-profits and Community Development Corporations whose vision, mission, and values align with ours to change the life trajectory of at-risk individuals and low-and-moderate-income individuals and families with children.

1. TALENT. The Foundation has an actively engaged Board of Trustees and Advisory Board who generously give their time, talents, and treasures. One-fifth of the board's human resource talent has knowledge, skills, and abilities in each of the following areas: Entrepreneurship, academia, ministry, law, executive leadership in corporate, industry, and the armed forces, and nonprofit community development. 80% of Board members with a graduate or post-graduate degree have at least one degree in science, technology, engineering, arts, or mathematics. Board members are passionate about inspiring, educating, resourcing, mentoring, and graduating culturally diverse youth and young adults to prepare for a family-sustaining career in one of the S.T.E.A.M. sectors.

2. SHARED MINDSET. Two of the top things the Foundation wants to be known for in the future are to be the chaplain provider of choice for workforce spiritual wellness and resilience and one of the top five providers of seminary-trained unrepresented clergy graduating without student loans. This capability has grown from helping one under-resourced seminarian in 2006 to sponsoring a diverse cohort of low to moderate-income seminarians throughout their four years of seminary education. The first cohort graduated in 2023.

3. INNOVATION. To extend its reach, the Foundation will leverage ChaplainCare LLC's distance learning infrastructure to increase access to affordable Clinical Pastoral Education, suicide prevention and intervention and postvention specialty training, and education for K-12 professional school chaplains throughout the United States. This platform will enable us to attract and clinically train more clergy and laity in remote rural settings who otherwise might not have the opportunity to participate in a traditional Clinical Pastoral Education program.

4. LEADERSHIP. The CC Taylor Foundation-ChaplainCare is a consultant, helping corporate, governmental, and K-12 school systems flourish. Additionally, we accelerate the growth of other smaller nonprofit organizations in becoming self-sustaining and preparing beneficiaries of donors' investments to become philanthropic entrepreneurs who change the lives of hundreds of low- and moderate-income households in underserved minority communities.

5. COLLABORATION. The Foundation engages in process improvement by sharing resources, services, and technologies with strategic corporate responsibility and sustainability partners locally and nationally. As an Association of Professional Fundraisers member, nonprofit sector best practices are adopted and integrated into our daily operations. This enables us to foster a culture for high-impact philanthropists working together to solve today's challenges and improve future generations' quality of life.

Thanks to loyal partners like you, our impactful philanthropic work in empowering students and serving the community are moving the needle:

Since our founding in 2006, 33% of 503 academically qualified applicants with exceptional financial needs have received a CC Taylor Foundation scholarship.

99% of the 167 undergraduate recipients have earned or are in the process of obtaining their accredited bachelor-level degree or vocational-technical education certifications thanks to the support of generous partners. 0.03% joined the military or went into the workforce to earn money to complete college.

20% of all recipients earn a master's or professional degree.

100% of our cohort co-sponsored seminarians are graduating student loan debt free while giving back by serving historically disadvantaged populations and unserved communities.

Partners’ strategic gifts of Time, Talents, and Treasures assisted with 27-Good Samaritan Outreach Ministries in addressing basic human requirements of children living in families with food, clean water, housing, healthcare, and employment insecurity helping disabled veterans or surviving family members with medical care and support.

Our collaborative partnership with Asbury Theological Seminary is in its third year of matching in-kind tuition assistance grants and scholarships for faith formation, leadership development, and lifelong learning.

WHAT’S NEXT?

Accelerating the flourishing of companies and the people they employ.

Establishing a Corporate Matching Gift Program, an All Veterans Care Endowment, and a Legacy Giving Program for long-term mission impact.

Sustain and grow the number of people and causes served through diverse Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability Partnerships.

Incorporate ChaplainCare Chaplaincy Curriculum that leads to Academic Credits at accredited theological seminaries.

Explore pathways for chaplains to earn nationally recognized workplace chaplaincy education and consulting credentials.

Promote entrepreneurship and philanthropy among the recipients of our services to contribute to the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals that align with our vision, mission, and values.

  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.

Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.

  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
