Welcome to the White Family Foundation website. 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 White Family Foundation has recently updated its Mission Statement and its core areas of focus. Please review the Mission Statement, the Guidelines for making submissions, and how to submit your grant proposal in time for consideration by the Foundation’s Board of Directors.

Note: For 2017, there are four submission dates for grant requests of $3,000 or less - February 1st, April 1st, August 1st and November 1st.

Grant requests for over $3,000 and multi-year requests will be reviewed on a semi-annual cycle in March and September 2017. The deadline for the March submission is February 1st; the deadline for a September submission is August 1st.

Website changes are on the way! The White Family Foundation website will be undergoing a makeover and a new website will go live after the first of the year. When it does, grant applications can be completed and submitted online, although the Foundation will continue to accept submissions by mail.

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.
