It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our beloved co-founder Barry Taylor, who passed away Saturday afternoon, November 16, 2013.
No stranger to philanthropy, Barry sat on the board of the March of Dimes for several years in the 1980s and he and Elaine held fundraisers on their behalf at their Lafayette home before founding The Taylor Family Foundation in 1990.
Barry approached philanthropy as he did every aspect of his life - on simple, yet profound principles of good living: rise to the challenge, work hard, enjoy life, and always take care of each other. Through these principals, he not only created countless memories for Bay Area children and families in need, but also instilled a standard of giving that will live on in those who were blessed to know him.
