The Mission of the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation is to promote the common good and well-being of all the people of our nation, primarily by promoting universal and unlimited educational opportunities based solely on each individual’s ability and willingness to learn.

Mr. and Mrs. Patrick F. Taylor founded the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation in 1985 as a gesture of thanks to the nation that had given them so much.

Today the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation continues Mr. Taylor’s educational crusade in developing Taylor Plan programs in other states. The Foundation also monitors the Taylor Opportunity Program for Students (TOPS) in Louisiana and programs in other states to ensure qualified students will continue to receive the opportunity to obtain a college education based on their own high school achievements.

While education is its primary area of interest, the Foundation also supports advances in law enforcement, the military, community charitable organizations and humanitarian efforts.
