THE WHITE FAMILY FOUNDATION
The Employee Charitable Grant Program
Taco Comfort Solutions strives through its products and people to make a better world. Taco pledges to be part of the community by financially supporting the non-profits that work tirelessly for everyone. This is most effectively accomplished by supporting our employees’ charitable volunteer efforts through the White Family Foundation. The Foundation is committed to serving diverse groups of people when awarding grants.
The Employee Charitable Grant Program was established by Taco Inc., conducted through the White Family Foundation, to support charitable organizations where employees volunteer their time, provide support or receive personal service.
Taco and the White Family Foundation, through their grant-making process, endorse the commitment employees make to non-profit organizations and encourage employees to become active members of society.
The Foundation is proud to have provided Employee Charitable Grants to many area non-profit organizations such as: the Boy Scouts of America in Cranston, The Boys & Girls Club of Fall River, Children’s Friend, Creative Living Community of Connecticut, The Girl Scouts of RI, Hope Library, Junior Achievement of Southeastern Massachusetts, Lafayette Band, MS Dream Center of RI, Olivia Fund at Milford Regional Medical Center, Pell Elementary School of Newport, RI Co-Parenting Education Services of RI, Southern RI Volunteers, The Autism Project, The Cambodian Society of RI, URI Master Gardener Association, and West Bay Chorale.
Taco encourages employee volunteering for a non-profit charitable organization as an effective way to develop leadership skills, build upon strengths, and connect with the community. Studies show that people who volunteer develop soft skills that are instrumental for success in a business environment.
