Folds of Honor is a non-profit organization that provides scholarships to children and spouses of disabled veterans or those killed in action. To date, the charity has raised more than $100 million and provided nearly 16,000 scholarships.
Taco’s interest in Folds of Honor began when training director John Barba and wholesale channel manager Carl Perrone learned that the organization provides trade school scholarships in addition to college scholarships. Folds of Honor founder Maj. Dan Rooney is the first person to pilot F-16 fighter jets and become a PGA golf professional. He’s a three-tour combat veteran and has twice been awarded the USAF Top Gun award.
In the summer of 2017, Taco released a contractor rebate program to support its two newest ECM, high-efficiency circulators, the 007e and the 0015e3. The rebate program served as a means to incorporate the Folds of Honor charity to support military families, the company said.
The donation was a collaborative fundraiser in which contractors who purchased a circulator could donate $3 or the entire sum of their rebate to Folds of Honor; Taco promised an additional $3 donation for every mail-in rebate received. In addition, The White Family Foundation donated $10,000 to the cause.
