The John and Happy White Foundation, first established in January 2000, has been renamed to "Taco/The White Family Foundation". While the Foundation has a new name, its mission remains the same as that created by its founders, the late John and Happy White, to receive and evaluate all requests for grants or other assistance from non-profit community-based entities serving significant social goals in Rhode Island.

Since its beginning, the Foundation has successfully fulfilled that mission, providing assistance to over 300 non-profit organizations. Applicants should read the Grant Guidelines closely paying particular attention to the Areas of Focus and the Letter of Application sections. The Foundation board meets to consider applications every six weeks. Every effort is made to communicate board decisions as quickly as possible.

Note: The Taco/White Family Foundation does not normally provide support for events expenses – annual meetings, awards luncheons, golf tourneys, etc. The foundation focuses its support on programs and projects designed to advance organizations' missions and objectives. Applicants should avoid sending requests to the Foundation to help meet expenses for these types of events.
