About the Taco/White Family Foundation
The generosity of the White family began in the 1990’s by John Hazen White and his wife, Happy, as they supported numerous leading educational and arts organizations. After Mr. White’s death in 2000, Happy and their son, John Hazen White, Jr., established the John & Happy White Foundation and formalized its mission to assist community-based, non-profit organizations in RI. As the Foundation evolved, making grants to over 200 organizations, the name was changed in 2010 to the Taco/White Family Foundation. This change reflects the commitment by Taco, its employees, and the White Family in contributing to the community.
