It takes a lot of help to get big things accomplished in the world. Making things look simple isn’t nearly as simple as it may seem. Detailed planning, a ton of hard work and great people, most importantly, are all necessary to get things moving in the right direction.

Here at Taylor’s Gift Foundation, it’s no different. Over the last few years, we have been blessed by the generosity of some wonderful people - all incredibly talented and hardworking - and we’d like to take a moment to thank them. These "Special Partners" are a group of incredible businesses who have lovingly shared our passion, selflessly given of themselves and eagerly supported our efforts. They have not only helped Taylor’s Gift accomplish countless goals and achievements, but they continue to lend a helping hand.

Thank you, Special Partners. We feel so blessed to have had your support over these last few years.

Legacy Gift Partners

Designed to provide specific help to those touched by organ donation, and made possible with the help of some incredible partners, our Legacy Gift program is currently able to administer financial help through strategic alliances with organ procurement organizations in both Texas and in New York. Through a 3 year commitment to the “Adopt-a-Family” program with Nora’s Home in Houston, the program is also able to address specific needs facing transplant recipients and their families.
