Since its creation by the late Senator George Tapper in 1986, the Tapper Foundation has provided grant funding for area organizations in excess of $1.75 million dollars. 

The contributions to the local community will continue with support of newly-elected board member Amelia Marie Warriner.  She was appointed to replace longtime board member Mr. J.V. (Bubba) Gander of Apalachicola.  Mr. Gander has served on the board since1988 after the death of Mr. B. Roy Gibson. 

“While we are going to miss the wise and steady counsel of our longtime dear friend Mr. Bubba, I am excited for the future and what perspective Amelia can bring to our work” said Trish Warriner, mother of Amelia and Chair of the Board.

The Tapper Foundation is a non-profit family foundation supporting area organizations that enhance education, public welfare, social and religious justice.
