The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation
NOTE: Grants from the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF) are made based on the periodic review of the grant requests.
Guided by Elizabeth’s compassion, empathy, and courage, we honor and fight for the dignity of all people living with HIV/AIDS until we end the pandemic.
We pursue social justice and human rights for people with HIV/AIDS through three areas of focus:
- Direct Care & Prevention
- Driven by her belief in the value of human life and the dignity of all people, Elizabeth founded ETAF to provide care for the most marginalized and underserved populations affected by HIV/AIDS.
- Advocacy & Education
- As the first globally recognized celebrity to speak out against HIV/AIDS, Elizabeth was the ultimate advocate. Today, her voice and vision guide all we do.
- Fundraising & Stewardship
- We partner with donors to support Elizabeth’s vision of an AIDS-free world. As a pioneer in celebrity-led philanthropy, Elizabeth directed that a portion of her licensing royalties, such as White Diamonds, support ETAF.
Grants from the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation (ETAF) are made based on the periodic review of the grant requests. Requests that are selected for possible funding are those that are deemed by the Officers to be in keeping with Ms. Taylor’s wishes to be the most appropriate use of the Foundation’s funds at the particular time that grants are made.
Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation
The Robert Mapplethorpe Foundation was created in 1988 by the photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, with two major mandates: to support scientific research in the fight against HIV infection and AIDS, and to fund photography programming at arts institutions. Mr. Mapplethorpe died of AIDS in 1989. Prior funding of HIV-related work has encompassed the range of clinical and basic HIV research, HIV care and treatment, and funding of equipment and facilities to allow for improved HIV research and care.
The Foundation’s Board of Trustees reviews all applications at its quarterly meetings. The Foundation is not capable of providing emergency assistance; applicants should be prepared to wait several weeks or months for decisions to be made. The Board takes all requests seriously and attempts to make meaningful and informed decisions.
The Foundation provides funding for scientific research directed towards the treatment or cure of AIDS and HIV related infections.
The Board makes funding decisions in the field of HIV/AIDS research in consultation with qualified outside experts. The Foundation is currently seeking proposals for projects benefiting and/or being conducted in the New York area.

The Ittleson Foundation
Since 1932, The Ittleson Foundation has been serving the needs of the underprivileged and providing resources for organizations. The Foundation recognizes not-for-profit organizations, dedicated to bettering the United States, and as such, we provide funds for new initiatives and model projects that have the potential to greatly enhance public policy and the lives of fellow citizens. The Foundation's areas of particular interest are: mental health, AIDS, and the environment.
Since 1932 Mental Health has been a major focus at the Ittleson Foundation. The Foundation continues its commitment to bringing its “venture capital” approach to philanthropy to this area. In addition to our historic commitment to addressing the needs of underserved populations, we are particularly interested in innovative, pilot, model and demonstration projects that are:
- fighting the stigma associated with mental illness and working to change the public’s negative perception of people who have mental illness
- utilizing new knowledge and current technological advances to improve programs and services for people who have mental illness
- bringing the full benefits of this new knowledge and technology to those who presently do not have access to them
- advancing preventative mental health efforts, especially those targeted to youth and adolescents, with a special focus on strategies that involve parents, teachers, and others in close contact with these populations
AIDS remains a significant concern of the Ittleson Foundation. Our commitment to supporting cutting-edge prevention efforts remains strong. As in all our current areas of interest, innovative initiatives that involve more than one program area are encouraged.
We are particularly interested in new model, pilot, and demonstration efforts:
- addressing the needs of underserved at-risk populations and especially those programs recognizing the overlap between such programs
- responding to the challenges facing community-based AIDS service organizations and those organizations addressing systemic change
- providing meaningful school-based sex education
- making treatment information accessible, available and easily understandable to those in need of it
- addressing the psycho-social needs of those infected and affected by AIDS, especially adolescents
