The White Family Foundation seeks to provide meaningful and strategic support for arts, education and healthcare non-profit organizations serving our communities to enable their long-term success in and achievement of their missions.

Welcome to the White Family Foundation. Across this site you can learn about the charitable work and legacy of John Hazen White, Sr. and his wife Happy, and the continuance and expansion of that work by their son John Hazen White, Jr. and his wife Liz.

The Board of Directors of the White Family Foundation has refined the Foundation’s grant review focus to three areas of giving: Arts, Education and Healthcare. Applications for grants should fall within one or more of these areas. Please review carefully the Guidelines and Application Process for making submissions. The Board meets semi-annually to review grant proposals and submission deadlines are firm. Please note that the White Family Foundation focuses its support on programs and projects designed to advance an organization’s mission and objectives. The foundation does not provide sponsorship for events, annual meetings, awards luncheons, golf tournaments, etc. Applicants should avoid sending requests to the Foundation to help meet those expenses.

The White Family Foundation has reassessed its priorities and will be taking two initial steps in 2019 as it reopens its grant application process. In early 2019 the Foundation will concentrate its efforts on expanding its Employee Charitable Grant Program which encourages philanthropic and volunteer support in the community among its employees. In July 2019, the Foundation will open its grant application process to community non-profit organizations under new submission guidelines. The new grant submission guidelines will be posted soon.
