Our Mission Statement

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 mission.

Building Stronger Communities Together

Taco Comfort Solutions, Inc. has a strong social responsibility to the communities in which it has business concerns. The Taco/White Family Foundation Board is made up of White family members, community leaders and Taco Corporation employees who engage in the community and organizations that are served by the Foundation. Through its grant-making, the Taco/White Family Foundation seeks to work with organizations whose programs build a foundation for growth for the individuals it serves.

Areas of Focus

The ability to experience culture is an important tool of a rich and vibrant community. We encourage programs that open the arts particularly for under-served populations who couldn’t or wouldn’t have access by themselves; provide youth development; show leadership in or enhance economic development of the community.

We encourage engaged and life-long learners in a reassuring environment and support programs that provide access to skill development and opportunity for growth.

Healthy productive lives are the key to a successful community. We support programs that provide citizens access to basic needs and care and offer opportunities that enable participation in programs that support healthy choices.
